“My favorite part of the summer youth program was going on the jail tours and when it was payday. The jail tours were an eye-opening experience because I got to see things people rarely see. Also, being able to explore areas that are normally restricted was a very cool experience and feeling. . . One thing that I have learned while working at the courthouse was the importance of networking with new people and constantly communicating with my coworkers. You never know where life will lead you so it is important to get to know as many people as you can because that same person I met at the courthouse could be the same person that will hire me in the future.”
