Summer Internships: Training Future Leaders
Students across the country have returned to school. They’re grappling with the concepts being taught to them but also the question, ‘what is next for me?’
Each summer, students from across the country intern with OJPC. They help our clients, and through their work, we help train them as future leaders for fair, intelligent, redemptive justice. We wish to say thank you to our last group of amazing summer students. And what better way to celebrate them than sharing their insight? You can find their reflections on their summer at OJPC below. Taken together, their reflections on their collaboration with each other, OJPC staff, and clients capture the spirit of our work: we don’t write people off.
Read their reflections below
Kellan Robinson: “This summer, I had a front seat view of how justice works.”
Maximillian Schneider: “I know the knowledge I have gained at OJPC will be with me forever, wherever I go.”
Ashton Tucker: “The law acknowledges that many people, mostly women and girls, who find themselves in the sex trade are there through force and manipulation. . . . [V]ictims of sex trafficking should be supported rather than criminalized.”
Natalie Weber: “[A] person is so much more than a criminal record.”
