Acting Prosecutor Theodore Stephens II invites high school juniors from Essex County who will enter the 12th grade in September 2023 to apply to the Essex County Prosecutor’s Office high school summer internship program.
This four-week program will expose students to careers in law, law enforcement, and government. The program runs from July 5, 2023, to August 4, 2023. Interns will learn about the role and functions of the Essex County Prosecutor’s Office, attend workshops focused on college and career readiness, and discuss topics such as internet safety, gang awareness, and substance- abuse intervention. In addition, students will be exposed to cultural events.
Nicole Graves Watson, Community Justice Coordinator, who manages the internship program, said “The Summer Youth Internship Program has been fundamental to the growth of so many high school students 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.”
Applications for the summer internship program can be found on the Essex County Prosecutor’s Office website at https://njecpo.org/community-programs . The application deadline is March 17, 2023. For more information, contact Nicole Graves-Watson: firstname.lastname@example.org
