The Knowledge Center at Chaddock extends opportunities for internship, practicum, and job shadowing experiences to students working on their bachelors or masters degrees.  We work with the student to tailor the experience specifically to the student’s interests and the requirements of their program.  We can accommodate internships of varying length. 


Common internship/practicum sites include our residential treatment facility, foster care department, and special education school.  In addition to these areas, we also have operational internships in the fields of finance, human resources, development, quality assurance, and nursing. 

For more information regarding the internship opportunities, please contact Cassie Dierker, Associate Director of Learning & Employee Development at 217-222-0034, ext. 456 or via email at If you are interested in applying for an internship or practicum experience, please complete the Internship Application.
