The Essex County Prosecutor’s Office is looking for high school juniors to participate in its annual summer internship program. This five-week program is designed to expose high school students to careers in law, law enforcement and local government.
The summer internship program will be held from July 8 through August 9 for students completing their junior year by June 2013. Interns must be Essex County residents. During the internship, interns will be exposed to a comprehensive curriculum that includes: learning about the role and function of the Essex County Prosecutor’s Office; participating in New Jersey State Trooper Youth Week, a one-week residential program; observing a jury trial and participating in a mock trial; and learning about other governmental agencies. Interns will also participate in workshops on business etiquette and making positive choices.
Applications for the summer internship program can be found on the Essex County Prosecutor’s Office Web site under Community Outreach. The application deadline is March 8, 2013. For further information, contact Nicole Graves-Watson, Community Justice Coordinator at (973) 621-5377.
