Santa Cruz Probation Internship Program

Work in the adult division, juvenile division, or the juvenile hall to gain practical experience in the criminal justice field working with other probation staff, partnering agencies, and clients.

You must be 18 years old, be able to pass a background check, and finger printing is required. Please attend an orientation to learn more and to apply for this opportunity. Orientations are held only two times per year at the beginning of the Fall and Spring semesters.

We plan to have our next orientation on 9/9/15 @ 2:30 at Santa Cruz County Juvenile Probation Department at 3650 Graham Hill Road. If you are interested in attending this orientation you must pre-register by emailing Karla Wade (see email address below). Spaces are very limited and are on a first-come, first-register basis. When you arrive at the Probation Department, check in with the receptionist. Be prepared to show your drivers license, and bring a copy of your resume. If you are not registered to attend this orientation, you unfortunately will be turned away. Attending this orientation is the first step in applying for our internship program.
