American Correctional Association
206 N Washington St,
Since 1870, the American Correctional Association has represented those who work in corrections: prisons, jails, halfway houses, probation and parole. We strive to advance the profession of corrections by publications (books, directories, journals, newsletters), training, conferences, standards and accreditation, and legislative affairs. Interns are active in almost all facets of our association. Several of our interns have gone on to law school, CIA, Federal Bureau of Prisons, and other challenging positions.
For the publications intern, we are seeking a person(s) with the ability to organize, write, edit, and proofread material as well as make calls clarifying information. We will the name(s) of the intern(s) in the front of the books, something which looks great for an employer to see. Two interns will help us with our annual directory of prisons, organizing information, styling it, checking facts, verifying contacts, and other duties to help us with this 1,152 page book. Another intern will help us assemble and edit the State of Corrections, a compilation of speeches presented at conferences. A separate intern will help us with our flagship publication, Corrections Today. All interns will get an opportunity to help write an article for this magazine with their own byline. We would expect each intern to devote two and a half days or more per week for the internship.
For the publications interns, we are seeking person(s) with the ability to organize, write, edit, and proofread. The individual(s) should have the maturity to follow assigned tasks with minimum supervision. We would prefer interns with a background in English or journalism and criminal justice or similar majors If you have experience with Access or Excel, these are a plus but not required. The individuals select should be able to communicate clearly in both written and spoken formats. These interns should be polite and upbeat.
