Adelphoi

Adelphoi Intern

June - July 2018 • Connellsville, PA

What I liked

The main thing that I liked about my internship was getting to know the kids on a more personal level as well as reading about their very different backgrounds/personalities.

What I wish was different

The staff members spent most of the time on their phones and did not really seem to believe that most of the kids had bright futures.

Advice

I personally never once thought about working with juveniles. I mainly settled on this particular internship since the house I was put into was close to where I lived. However, it allowed me to get a different perspective on the criminal justice system so I personally do not regret stepping out of my comfort zone and choosing an internship in an environment that I never considered before.
