Internships & Service Learning

University Settlement was originally founded as a training site for social workers from what is
now Case Western Reserve University. We have continued this tradition in partnership with
various schools and universities throughout Northeast Ohio, and provide between dozens of
interns with well-rounded, real life experience each year.

Businesses & Groups

We invite companies and organizations to come and lend a hand whenever your schedule permits, you can make a difference.
