Anna Maria Colleges announces that two of its seniors are currently participating in internship programs through The Washington Center in Washington, DC. The Washington Center internship program places students in a variety of federal agencies, depending upon their major fields of study. Coordinated by AMC Associate Professor Michael McCartney, Ph.D., Melissa Allen ’14 of Natick, MA is serving with the U.S. Marshal’s Office and Timothy Souza ’14 from North Smithfield, RI is working with the Montgomery County Public Defenders.
Here’s what Melissa and Tim have to say about their experiences so far:
“I am having a great time in DC. I am interning with the US Marshal service in their criminal intelligence branch. I love my internship. I feellike the small project I am working on is really making a difference in people's lives. I am not allowed to talk about what exactly I do at myinternship but I love it. I have already learned so much aboutthe criminal justice field. We also have workshops such as resumebuilding and job interviewing skills. It's nice being in such a different city too. I also have a weekly class where the professor lets us debate about war policies. For my civic engagement project I chose to workon human trafficking prevention and will be volunteering at a safe house.This program is a huge work load but it is work that I enjoy.” Melissa Allen ‘14.
