About Montgomery County Pre-Release Center

The Montgomery County Pre-Release Center is a national model of community re-entry services. The center offers residential and home confinement services to sentenced offenders, as well as programs that address employment, substance abuse and recovery, education, family re-integration and mental health, all in a monitored and supervised environment.

Community correction interns work in the pre-release center and in the community. Participants can expect to supervise residents, direct leisure and recreational programs, monitor alcohol and drug use, participate in group meetings and assist in inmate education. Academic interns construct a program with the help of their supervisor that complements their academic and career goals.


Candidates interested in paid internships must be at least 21 years of age and have completed at least two years of college. For the unpaid academic internship, students must have competed at least one year in a criminal justice, behavioral sciences or human services related field.
