The Victim Advocate Unit utilizes interns from the University of Florida and Santa Fe Community College. Interns are designated hours to complete by their sponsoring professor for the Fall, Spring, or Summer semesters. The internship program is unpaid. The application process and background check takes approximately 4 to 6 weeks to complete, so start early to have paperwork completed before the semester begins.
