AZ Deparment of Juvenile Corrections searching for interns

Arizona Department of Juvenile Corrections is looking for two new interns to handle outreach to potential victims, work as a case managers, and learn about different aspects of the state agency.

If you're thinking about a career in juvenile justice, you might be interested to hear that the Arizona Department of Juvenile Corrections is looking for two new interns to handle outreach to potential victims, work as a case manager, and learn about different aspects of the state agency.

“Students will gain knowledge and experience about the impact the Unit has in victims’ lives,” said Nancy Molever, an administrator at the Arizona Department of Juvenile Corrections.  “They will learn how we develop and use programs for youth to help them understand how people were victimized by their delinquent behavior.”

The Arizona Department of Juvenile Corrections has opportunities in several different areas, including the Research and Development Unit, Community Corrections (Parole), and the Safe School Program.

Undergraduate student Rachel McKay was the most recent CRJ student to intern for the department. She worked in the Victims' Rights Unit. As an intern she helped find victims of crimes committed by juveniles and reached out them. Going in, McKay had no idea where I she going with my CRJ major, but now has the direction that she wants to focus on.

“I learned a lot from this internship. I got to see first hand how the restorative justice system works, and it was a fantastic opportunity to see just what it is a victim's advocate does,” McKay said. “I am now interested more than ever in pursuing juvenile justice and/or juvenile corrections.” 

And that’s one of the goals of the School’s internship program. Internships not only help students gain the experience needed to get a job after graduation, but also helps them figure out what profession they want to work in.

Prospective interns should contact Nancy Molever by email at nmolever@asdjc.gov or by phone at 602-364-3515 to set up an interview.
