Justice Volunteers – College Student Research Team application

The Justice Collaborative is a team of legal experts, researchers, and media strategists collaborating across a collection of strategically aligned projects to advance criminal justice reform. We supply deep legal and policy expertise to organizations throughout the country to cut through the complexity and confusion of local, state, and federal laws and procedures that make up our criminal justice system. Our goal is to transform our deeply flawed criminal system so that it’s grounded in human dignity and restraint.

The Justice Volunteers , a project of The Justice Collaborative (TJC), is a volunteer task force dedicated to researching a variety of key criminal justice issues. The work done by The Justice Volunteers is incredibly valuable to TJC’s goal of holding elected officials in the criminal justice
system accountable, advocating for reform-minded policies across the country, and researching and amplifying important local issues related to criminal justice reform.

The College Student Research Team will work remotely and be primarily supervised by Molly Bernstein. Almost all of this work is done online and is designed to be as flexible as possible to allow team members to work whenever their schedule permits. However, it is expected that members will work at least 3 hours per week.

HOW TO APPLY
Interested students should submit their resume and a cover letter to Molly Bernstein at molly.bernstein@thejusticecollaborative.com with the subject line “College Student Research Team Applicant.” In the cover letter, applicants should be sure to note which element(s) of the TJC Blueprint most align with their interests and/or past experiences.

Why You Should Take My Job as the CCE Communications Intern

Will DiGravio ’19 has been the CCE Communications intern since the fall of 2017. Apply for the job and learn more here.

If you follow the CCE on social media, read this blog, and/or subscribe to our weekly updates newsletter, you know that a lot happens here. Each day, dozens and dozens of students venture out into our college community, Addison County, and beyond in the hope to make a difference in the lives of those they meet.

But, there are folks here who are not on the front lines, who work behind the scenes to help make this center accomplish all it does in a given week. I’m one of those people.

For the past two years, I have worked as the CCE’s communications intern. In my role, I help manage social media, this blog, and work with student organizations and community partners to advertise service opportunities to students, most of which eventually make their way into our weekly updates newsletter.

I applied for this job on the heels of completing an internship at The Addison Independent, our local newspaper, and wanted to maintain the connection I felt to the community outside the college. The job description cites a familiarity with local media, “including The Addison Independent, as a qualification. It seemed like the perfect fit. And it was.

In this role, I’ve published interviews with student and community leaders, I’ve helped connect students with literally hundreds of different service opportunities, and, above all, I’ve helped tell the story of what goes on here each and every day.

In this job, I’ve put together spreadsheets and analyzed data, put together plans to increase web traffic and grow our online audience, and had a chance to create graphics, blog posts, social media posts, and more, all while helping and highlighting the work of volunteers in our community. There aren’t many jobs that allow one to learn tangible skills while also feeling like their are helping grow the community around them.

If all of those things sound interesting to you, then you should take my job here at the CCE. Now, stop thinking about it, and just apply here.
