Gloucester County Summer Youth Internship Program

The Gloucester County Prosecutor’s Office runs a special summer program for high school students. Last week, Edward Murphy, Director of Pupil Personnel Services and I met with Jackie Caban, Assistant Prosecutor for Gloucester County about the program. Ms. Caban runs the program for the Prosecutor’s Office.

High school students can apply to be part of a group of twenty who participate in a four-week program – two weeks are held at the Police Academy (on Gloucester County College’s campus) and two weeks are at the Prosecutor’s Office here in Woodbury. Some program highlights:

  • Free transportation is provided to get to GCC during the first two weeks,
  • Free lunch is provided daily,
  • There is an opportunity to learn about law enforcement from a variety of people in the field,
  • A number of trips (Cooper Trauma Center, Constitution Center, etc.) are included as part of the program, and
  • A $400 stipend is paid to each participant.

Applications are available now. Stop by the main office. You can see either of the high school counselors or Mr. Murphy for more information.

Woodbury is allotted approximately five of the twenty slots. The program is open to students who will be entering their sophomore, junior or senior years.
