NJLBCF Internships

The internship program supplemented the students experience with a series of seminars convering an array of topics.  One such seminar included career advice from former program interns and government officials.  Through this seminar, the interns learned how the internship might be able to open career opportunities. In one instance, a seminar speaker arranged for the interns to meet Governor Phil Murphy and some members of his staff.

In addition to the seminars,  the interns participate  in weekly discussions with Jessica Dufort and Tyhesia Dawson, internship coordinators for the program. The two coordinators held weekly discussions with the interns, they ensured program objectives were met, they monitored any concerns and held weekly discussions with the students.  As recent graduates themselves, the two shared their goals and experiences, provided “near-peer” insights and helped the interns set a course for the future.
