I’m Amy, and I am a senior Social Work major from Union, Michigan, a suburb just northwest of Detroit. I interned with Porter County Juvenile Probation. I went to Portage High School on Tuesdays and Valpo High School on Thursdays to meet with the youth. I make sure they are following along with their terms of probation. I help them access resources to make better choices and to get their lives back on track. My junior year, I interned at the Boys and Girls Club and my main task was to lead an educational, prevention intervention group called SmartGirls. I really enjoy working with children and teens, and would love to work with them in some way for my career, hopefully in inner-city settings. end
