Our internship program includes a variety of experiences aimed at giving interns numerous opportunities to learn more about Juvenile Law Center's work, the issues we work on, and how our work fits into the advocacy field. These sometimes include but are not limited to: brown bag lunch discussions led by our expert staff, site visits at youth facilities, court room observation, and visits to agencies and organizations serving youth in the child welfare and justice systems.

Candidates are encouraged to apply for multiple internship positions in their areas of interest. Applying to multiple positions will not affect likelihood of selection.
