The Prisons and Justice Initiative is pleased to offer its Internship Matching Program, which seeks to pair Georgetown students with DC-area Criminal Justice Reform organizations.  These organizations serve the criminal justice reform movement in a variety of ways, such as offering assistance and support to returning citizens, advocating for reform legislation, and providing support to people currently incarcerated. Internship and volunteer opportunities will be listed on our program’s website, and interested students are encouraged to contact PJI Research Assistant Maria Bianculli for more information on applying to these positions.

Beginning this semester, the Prisons and Justice Initiative will offer a small monetary honorarium to up to 10 Georgetown students who find their internships or positions through our Matching Program.  In addition to this, these selected students will receive the title of “PJI Fellow.”

Check out our current opportunities, and check back often to see new and updated posts.

Contact Maria Bianculli at mfb62@georgetown.edu for more information or to apply for a position.
