Project Harmony is preparing for the 2020 Legal Summer institute. We are now seeking organizations that would like to host an intern through this program.
To host an intern, please read the Supervisor’s Agreement and submit a completed Request for Intern by November 1, 2019. The information that you submit will be posted along with the intern application in order for the interns to rank placement preferences.
Organizations will receive a list of candidates to review and interview in January. After this, the organization ranks the candidates they would be interested in hosting. Law students, also, submit a list of rank preferences. Then a selection committee at Project Harmony will facilitate matching the law students with organizations. Every effort is made to match the preferences of both parties, but there is no guarantee that every placement will receive an intern.
If you have any questions, please contact Anne Rogers, LSI program Director, at 402-850-3456 or email@example.com. Thank you for your willingness to participate in the LSI program to mentor emerging child welfare professionals.
Students work in a juvenile court or advocacy organization in Omaha, Lincoln, or Council Bluffs under the supervision of child advocacy professionals on child welfare issues.
