If you have an interest in helping us fight elder crime, please call our hotline (501 683 7153) to arrange a time to chat with us about current internships available.  Interested students can be any major since our efforts to address elder crime include skills connected with any college student.

Internships begin with the summer and fall semesters, students receive a grade at the end of each semester for the work they perform while interning for the Senior Justice Center.  We ask for prospective interns to submit four documents (listed below).  Using these four documents, the Senior Justice Center Director and office manager select the top applicants to come visit with us during an interview.  After the interview process, the interns for the upcoming semester will be selected and notified.

  • Interns at the Senior Justice Center complete research, operate our hotline, present at scholarly conferences and community seminars, participate in local events (like annual AETN fundraisers), and a variety of other interesting and educational projects/opportunities are offered as well.
  • Our interns have moved on to exciting careers and obtained scholarships as well as valuable training and professional experience - ideal for resume enhancement.  Please, carefully look over our website to learn more about us and all of the exciting ways you can help us fight elder crime.
