Internships – General Information

“I quickly learned that CFCR doesn’t just talk about working for children but the staff all actually put in more work than seems possible. I have been blessed these past months to work with the best of the best. I learned so much about the Juvenile Court system, about the positive impact that CFCR has on the community and, most importantly, about myself. I will forever carry with me the lessons Council for Children’s Rights have taught me and I could never thank them enough for the confidence and faith they had in me.”
