Children's Studies Career Exploration Internship: Center for Community Alternatives

“I work at a nonprofit that provides family services to people in crises. I'm the human resources assistant there, so I get to play both fields with the employees and interact with families in need. My internship was one of my most memorable, and I thank you for all the advice and insight you gave me.”

Children's Studies Career Exploration Internship: Judge Esther M. Morgenstern

"I'm six weeks away from the end of my first semester of law school (Touro College Jacob D. Fuchsberg Law Center). My internship with Judge Esther M. Morgenstern was an amazing experience. I sat next to Judge Morgenstern on the bench. I don't know how many people can say that they've sat next to a judge on the bench while court was in session. It allowed me to see what being a lawyer encompasses, and not a lot of people have that opportunity. It definitely assured me that the career I was interested in was right for me."

Children's Studies Career Exploration Internship: Hebrew Academy for Special Children

"The Children's Studies internship opened up a whole new world for me. Graduating Brooklyn College in May 2009, I was on the path of becoming a speech pathologist; however, my internship at Hebrew Academy for Special Children (HASC) was quite a lasting experience for me. After my first semester of graduate school last year, I couldn't shake the feeling that speech wasn't where I belonged. I was given the opportunity to work as a substitute teacher's assistant at HASC for the first half of this year, and I absolutely loved it! I knew working with children with disabilities was really where my heart was. I am now in my second semester of graduate school at New York University, where I am pursuing a dual master's degree in early childhood and early childhood special education. If it wasn't for the Children's Studies internship, I think it would have taken that much longer for me to realize my career path."
