Dallas Children's Advocacy Center

Children's Program Intern

May - August 2019 • Dallas, TX

What I liked

I enjoyed learning more about abuse victims and the process of the involvement in the community with leaders.

What I wish was different

I wish I could have been more involved and interactive with the cases, rather than babysitting children in the waiting area.

Advice

I wouldn't recommend this for an intern site, because you don't have much room for learning anything new and interesting.

Children's intern

September - December 2019 • Dallas, TX

What I liked

I loved the fact that I was really hands on with kids and that anytime I had a question anyone was willing to answer it help when I needed something.

Childcare Worker

January - May 2018 • Dallas, TX

What I liked

I liked how helpful the staff at DCAC was and the positive environment that was encouraged for the children and their families

What I wish was different

I wish I could’ve spent more time or learned more about the legal process of things outside of taking care of the kids

Advice

I think this is a great internship to experience especially is someone is wanting to work with kids. It’s a small way to expose yourself to the abuse that kids go through without being fully submerged and becoming overwhelmed

Family Advocate Intern

September 2017 • Dallas, TX

What I liked

Yes, if you are thinking about going into the social work field I highly recommend!

What I wish was different

I wish I could have more one- on- one time with the supervisor to learn.

Advice

The amount of work you put in is what you will get out of it.
