The Housing department is accepting Masters level internship applications for MSW students on a rolling basis beginning 12/1 for the 2020-2021 school year (or until all 3 spots are filled).

Each year, 360’s Housing Department accepts internship applications starting in December for students pursuing their Masters in Social Work. Ultimately 360 aims to select 3 interns each year to work with young people in our transitional housing programs for youth ages 18-24 who are experiencing homelessness.

Details:

  • Our housing programs are located near downtown Naperville.
  • Internships typically start in August and end in May.
  • We require that interns spend at least 2 semesters with the program and ideally span at least 9 months. Given the population that we serve, we do not want adults in and out of our young people’s lives so quickly so we cannot accommodate 3-6 month internships.
  • The internship is ideal for students interested in working with youth experiencing homelessness, LGBTQ+ youth, individuals interested in social justice, etc. Interns will provide case management and 1:1 support for 2-3 residents and have the opportunity to run groups and teach life skills.
