JPI is accepting applications for its internship program in the areas of communications and research. We accept interns for the fall or spring semester, summer, or for the entire academic year. All applicants are required to submit a cover letter detailing why they are interested in an internship with the Justice Policy Institute, a resume, and a writing sample. The cover letter should also include all contact information: current address, phone and fax numbers, and email address.
We seek interns interested in being introduced to the “nuts and bolts” of criminal justice and juvenile justice reform work and issues. This may include everything from poring through government reports, statistics, records, and data to working on the media and communications strategy associated with a state-based campaign/initiative or analyzing legislation with clear policy implications. JPI is committed to creating a fulfilling and rewarding internship experience and view this as a partnership between our organization, students, and educators. Interns will work under the supervision of the Research and Communications Departments at JPI. In addition to performing some basic administrative functions for the organization, interns will also be expected to attend meetings with senior staff as appropriate and to support JPI’s strategic initiatives.
Schedules are flexible and can work around students' school and/or work activities. This is an unpaid internship, however, we are happy to work with schools that provide for funding or course credit. Interested applicants should send their resume, a cover letter and writing sample via email to Melissa Neal at firstname.lastname@example.org.
