Supervisor Agreement

2019 Emory Summer Child Advocacy Program
Supervisor Agreement

My organization requests to serve as a placement for summer interns through the Emory Summer Child Advocacy Program. Therefore, I agree to the following (agreement will be electronically submitted on the "Request for Intern" form):

  • Complete the online "Request for Intern" form and submit by November 7, 2018.
  • Conduct telephone or in-person interviews with internship applicants between January 15-30, 2019.
  • Submit a list ranking my top applicant choices to the Barton Center by 5:00 pm, January 31, 2019.
  • Require the student intern to participate in the training program to be held at Emory University May 20-24, 2019.
  • Host and appropriately supervise the student intern for the duration of the program from May 28-August 14, 2019.
  • (Atlanta area supervisors): Require and provide release time for the student intern to participate in ongoing training sessions or meetings held during the summer by the ESCAP (typically 2 occasions).
  • (Supervisors outside metro-Atlanta): Arrange for intern to visit two (2) local organizations other than my own that work on child abuse and neglect matters (i.e., juvenile court observation, child advocacy center, emergency shelter for children). Intern will submit a brief reaction report outlining his/her observations.
  • Provide meaningful work that is challenging for the student's ability levels in the area of child abuse and neglect. A substantial part of the student's work must fall within the purpose of the Children's Justice Act, which provides grants to states to improve the investigation, prosecution, and judicial handling of cases of child abuse and neglect, particularly child sexual abuse and exploitation, in a manner that limits additional trauma to the child victim. This also includes the handling of child fatality cases in which child abuse or neglect is suspected.

  • Intern must complete 400 hours (40 hours/week) in the placement. Meal breaks and training week do NOT count toward the 400 hours.
  • Provide intern with adequate work space, equipment, and materials in order for intern to successfully complete work assignments. Adequate provisions include, but are not limited to, a workstation, computer, email and internet access, and adequate office supplies.
  • Receive and review student timesheets each week during the summer.
  • Complete an evaluation form at the end of the summer about the student intern and the ESCAP.
  • Contact Michele Papotto if there is a change in organization leadership/supervisor for the intern at any time during the program. (404)712-8367
  • Contact the Program Director for support with supervisory issues at any time during the program.
  • Placement supervisors are invited to attend the end-of-summer dinner. Details will be provided during training week.

I have read and understand the Supervisor's Agreement and Program Information for Supervisors. Efforts will be made to match candidates to my placement but no guarantee is made that there will be a match. Likewise, if I do not think any of the candidates will be a good match for my organization, I am under no obligation to host an intern at my organization.
