Youth Employment Programs
Our Office is committed to enriching the lives of our local young people through educational experience and employment opportunities. We aim to provide the next generation with real life experiences in the working world as well as encourage them to make a positive impact in their own communities.
The DA's Office offers numerous programs to inspire local students to pursue a career in the field of criminal justice and public service, with the bulk of these programs taking place over the the course of the Summer. These include our Pathway/Pipeline to Justice program, Earl Warren Fellowship, DA's Justice Academy, and the Mary C. Warren Fellowship.
The internships and fellowships offered by our office are paid placements for students in high school or college. All successful applicants will be required to submit to a background check and fingerprinting, as is required for all DA's Office personnel.
The Pipeline & Pathway to the Justice System
During the summer months, we run numerous programs for students to participate in a paid internship experience. Our two main programs are Pathways to the Justice System (open to high school students) and Pipeline to the Justice System (for college undergraduates).
These programs were established for local students who wish to pursue careers in the fields of law and justice. Those accepted into the programs are provided with the opportunity to learn about the DA’s Office through engaging, hands-on projects in conjunction with administrative duties to provide them with an understanding of the full scope of work conducted at the DA's Office.
Through the Pathways and Pipeline programs, our interns develop leadership skills, public speaking and presentation skills, and other professional skills to help prepare them for college and their careers. Students are matched with work assignments at the various office branches based on their career interests.
The deadline has passed for applications relating to the Summer 2017 program. We are currently reviewing the applications that met the selection criteria and successful applicants will be notified shortly.
Applications for Summer 2018 program will open again in February 2018.
