How did you find your internship, or how did the internship find you?
I found this internship through one of my friends. My roommate recommended this internship because she really enjoyed it herself!
What did you expect from your internship initially?
I really went into the internship with no expectations because it wasn’t really something I looked much into. After being there for a while you start to realize how many different hats they wear.
What really happens in your day-to-day work?
All of the days were really different! On some days there would be court hearings and on other days we would go and make visits to the youth center and the different schools to see the kids.
What connections have you made?
I made many connections and even friends at this internship. The staff at the juvenile court is so great and personable. They were great to learn from and very professional and good at their jobs
What is the most valuable thing you’ll bring back to the classroom after this experience?
The most valuable thing that I learned was how important these people are in our society. Rarely in the classroom do we talk about how the people who work for juvenile probation affect our youth, and they are making such big impacts on these children. and their families.
If your internship was a book or a chapter in a book, what should it be titled?
“Many Different Hats.”
