Internship Program

​Four Oaks is happy to partner with a number of local colleges and universities to offer internship and practicum opportunities to individuals wanting to pursue careers in helping families and children succeed.

As a leader in innovative and effective behavioral healthcare, an internship with Four Oaks can help shape your career. Many former interns have gone on to become full-time members of our team.

Internship opportunities that are currently available can be found on the Career Opportunities page. Internships last for one academic term and are offered during the summer, fall and spring. Opportunities vary throughout Four Oaks’ many offices and programs throughout Iowa, but include experiences in:

  • Residential Treatment
  • School-Based Programs
  • After School Programs
  • Finance
  • Human Resources
  • Community Engagement

It is expected that an instructor from the student’s respective college/university acts as a liaison between Four Oaks and the school to ensure required education components are fulfilled. If selected to complete an internship at Four Oaks, your experience will be customized to your needs and area(s) of interest.
