International Internship Program
Saudi Arabia Interns
ACA hosts international interns seeking to expand their knowledge of the correctional system in the U.S. An intern assigned to ACA will have a custom designed program that will meet the needs of the intern and the home agency. The intern will learn the process of developing national-level standards; participate in scheduling audits; review written reports; look for sensitive correctional issues; assist in preparing accreditation contracts; assist in selecting audit teams based on the needs of the audit type; and assist in conducting auditor training. The intern will be expected to work on a project that will be beneficial to their home agency. The application process includes a letter beneficial to their home agency. The application process includes a letter of recommendation from their home agency, a resume, a job description from the current position and an interview with ACA leadership. The internship is not a paid position by ACA. The intern is responsible for acquiring all pertinent travel documents/visas and all individual expenses.
South Korea Intern
|| ACA interns can work within an individual discipline in corrections, such as health care. ACA will work with other countries to give individual requests for a special subject or an overview program. We can assist the intern in seeing corrections operations first-hand by visiting and observing on-site, such as a local jail. An ACA international internship is developed to enhance the individual's knowledge of operations within the United States. We welcome inquires.
