Internship program does students justice

Allison Gilmore was one of 87 students to participate in the Criminal Justice internship program last summer. The students devote 300 hours over 10 weeks to their placements, which range from local, state and federal agencies to nonprofits to businesses throughout Wisconsin, eastern Minnesota and northern Illinois.
Gilmore interned in the Juvenile Court Intake Department of Children's Court Services in her hometown of Eau Claire, Wisconsin. The hands-on experience completed changed her career plan.

Gilmore was one of nine students to receive the Audrey J. Harris Summer Internship Award, which allows recipients to recoup some of the costs associated with participation in the program. Read more about the award and Gilmore's transformative summer.
