I could not be more grateful for my experience at Court Appointed Special Advocates (CASA).The Arlin M. Adams Center provided me with the opportunity to intern with this national nonprofit organization at the beginning of my junior year in September 2013. From my first day on the job, I knew that this internship would change my life.
Being involved in helping children who have become involved with the justice system through parental neglect or abuse has been the greatest experience I have had throughout my entire college career.
This internship taught me so much about the courts, the legal system and how these means can be used to make a difference in the lives of at-risk young people. My involvement in CASA has not only provided me with knowledge that will help me excel in the workforce after college, but it has also helped me understand various points of view that will aid in my ongoing studies in the fields of law and sociology.
Thanks again to the Arlin M. Adams Center. It has been an exciting pleasure to work in this field a part of CASA during my years as an undergraduate at Susquehanna University.
