The Georgia Justice Project Internship Experience
Georgia Justice Project has earned a reputation as a great place to spend a semester or a summer during college or graduate school learning and serving others. We offer two tracks of internships, a legal service-learning experience and an undergraduate/social services experience. Through participation in our internship programs, students gain first-hand experience with the realities facing our clients—the indigent, criminally accused and their families.
GJP staff attorneys, social workers, community supporters and partners all share a deep commitment to creating, developing and implementing sustainable client programs and policies which offer real solutions to the needs of our clients. We invite students who are interested in criminal justice and who share our commitment to the poor to apply.
- The GJP Legal Internship Track
Our legal interns are involved with as many aspects of a case as possible. They work side by side with our attorneys and participate in the initial client interview process; writing and filing motions; investigating allegations and meeting with District Attorneys. Spaces for the legal track are extremely competitive and are limited to three for the summer. Serious intern candidates are strongly encouraged to apply early.
- The GJP Undergraduate/Social Work Track
Our undergraduate and social work interns are immersed in the day to day work of our social services and operations team. They experience the nuts and bolts of nonprofit operations, client intake procedures, program development and implementation including employment search and support services, jail visits, event planning and logistics, marketing and communications and a host of related activities. Spaces for the undergraduate and social work track are limited to two for the summer. Serious intern candidates are strongly encouraged to apply early.
No matter the track, all Georgia Justice Project interns participate in weekly reflections, group readings, immersion learning day trips and other group activities. They plan and participate in client events and service projects. No day is the same and all days are full.
