Summer Internship With County Prosecutor


Share post:

Prosecutor Theodore Stephens, II is inviting high school juniors to apply to the Essex County Prosecutor’s Office Summer Youth Internship Program.

The four-week internship is a mix of workshops, guest speakers, and class trips. The program exposes students to careers in law, law enforcement, and government. The interns will learn about the functions of the Prosecutor’s Office, and meet assistant prosecutors, detectives, and staff. They will take workshops on college preparation, career readiness, and business etiquette, and discuss topics such as internet safety, gang awareness, and substance-abuse intervention.

Guest speakers will include representatives from the Essex County Sheriff’s Department, the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives, the Secret Service, the Drug Enforcement Agency, as well as the FBI and the IRS.

Nicole Graves-Watson, the Community Justice Coordinator who manages the program, said, “The Summer Youth Internship has been fundamental to the growth of so many high school students from Essex County who now work professionally in criminal justice and law enforcement. So, if you are a high school junior with an interest in these fields, this is the internship for you.”

The program runs from July 5 to August 2, 2024. Classes start at 9 a.m. and end at 3:30 p.m., and students who complete the program will receive stipends. The internship is only for Essex County students who will complete their junior year in June 2024.

Applications for the internship program are on the Essex County Prosecutor’s Office website. The application deadline is March 18, 2024. For more information, contact Graves-Watson at [email protected].
