The Criminal Justice Department at Lindenwood University-Belleville has secured an on-the-job training opportunity with Children’s Home and Aid Society with the Redeploy Illinois Program, a program to maintain youth in their communities with supportive services, rather than corrections.
“Many students seek internships where they can work with youth,” said Judge (Ret.) Annette Eckert, criminal justice instructor. “This is a fantastic opportunity for our students who are studying criminal justice but have a passion working with youth.”
The organization has offices in Belleville and Granite City, Ill. For more information about this opportunity, contact Eckert at (618) 239-6168 or AEckert@lindenwood.edu.
