"I enjoyed my internship to the fullest, being able to see every aspect in the cook county juvenile court plus being able to see the suburban field was amazing. I met with the juveniles, parents, probation officers, attorneys and judges and really got a feel of every side of the story when it came down to what is best for the juvenile. Interning in the suburbs is what led me to take the next step and apply to be a juvenile probation officer, I would like to work in surrounding suburbs eventually since spanish speaking probation officers are so scarce."
