OJJDP Launches New Law Student Volunteer Internship Program


OJJDP has launched a new volunteer internship program for law students interested in the youth justice and child welfare fields. This is an ongoing program with semester-long positions available beginning in the spring and summer of 2024.

Interns will conduct legal research and analysis; gain insight into federal, state, local and Tribal work across the continuum of care, including prevention, intervention, and system-involvement; and assist OJJDP staff with legal projects. Students may work remotely.

Submit all application materials in one combined pdf document via email to [email protected], subject line JP-24-OJJDP-AVOL.
