“As a Community we are the Difference” -K. Moseley
Greetings Region 3 Leaders:
Please see the important news below! We need you to identify our leaders.
I hope you’re all doing well and enjoying the summer weather (finally!).
Please mark your calendars for our next Austin Coalition for Youth Justice meeting: Wednesday, June 15th, 10-11:30 a.m., at New Birth Christian Center, 5335 W. LeMoyne St. As always, send any items you’d like to see on the agenda my way. We hope to learn about the 25th Police District Peer Jury program as part of a continuing series of Restorative Justice trainings for our group. If you want to join the Steering Committee (agenda-planning and grant-writing), you are welcome to join us on at 10 a.m. on Monday, June 13th, also at New Birth Christian Center.
SAVE THE DATE: On June 25th, ACYJ is also co-sponsoring a day-long conference called “Arresting Justice: A Working Session on Juvenile Justice Issues in Lawndale and Austin.” We will meet from 9:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. at the Jane Addams Hull House Museum, 800 S. Halsted St. The Illinois Juvenile Justice Initiative will present its 2010 report on the disproportionate incarceration of west side youth for drug offenses, and Project NIA and First Defense will present a report on juvenile arrest trends in Chicago from 2009-2010. MOST IMPORTANTLY, there will be plenty of time identify community supports for youth impacted by the police and juvenile court systems, as well as to brainstorm methods of preventing juvenile arrests. Please find more details here: http://niastories.wordpress.com/2011/05/26/arresting-justice-a-working-session-about-juvenile-justice-in-lawndale-and-austin/.
PLEASE HELP: I hope that you all can help me identify a keynote speaker for the event on June 25th. We are looking for someone who can speak dynamically to the experiences of youth and families in Austin and/or Lawndale who have been impacted by the police and court systems. Ideally, I would like to hear from a young person with no pending cases (for confidentiality reasons) describe his/her experience, as well as an adult supporter from the family or community. We have an hour allotted for the keynote address. Please send your recommendations to me as soon as possible.
Finally, I apologize again to those of you who have not been getting e-mails sent to firstname.lastname@example.org. We’re working out the glitch and certainly didn’t mean to leave you out! Please continue to e-mail the whole group at that address, at least for now.
Thank you always for all of your good work. I look forward to seeing you soon!

Chicago Tribune Printers Row Lit Fest
What is the Chicago Tribune Printers Row Lit Fest?
The Printers Row Lit Fest was founded in 1985 by the Near South Planning Board to attract visitors to the Printers Row neighborhood (once the city’s bookmaking hub). By 2002, it had grown to five city blocks (on Dearborn, from Congress to Polk), attracting more than 200 booksellers from across the country displaying new, used and antiquarian books, and featuring seven stages with more than 100 free literary programs.
As part of its ongoing commitment to the written word and its support of literacy and literary endeavor, the Chicago Tribune purchased the Printers Row Book Fair in 2002 from the Near South Planning Board. Recently renamed to be the Printer’s Row Lit Fest, it is considered the largest free outdoor literary event in the Midwest-drawing more than 125,000 book lovers to the two-day showcase.

Federal Reserve Bank
Overview & Program Structure
The Summer Intern Program provides bright undergraduate and graduate students with the opportunity to gain valuable work experience at the Federal Reserve Bank. Through project-oriented assignments and professional development activities, interns receive a solid overview of the business of the Bank while contributing to their designated Fed departments.
Interns are paid based on their grade level and level of experience. They are assigned to a single department for the summer. In addition, they attend weekly seminars (normally during lunch) to increase their exposure to senior management and to career opportunities at the Bank.
Most interns join from late May to mid June when summer break begins and normally work 40 hours per week. Typically, internships last for 10 consecutive weeks in the summer. Some interns may continue to work part-time if the department prefers to retain them during the year.
Profile of Interns
Applicants must have a strong academic record and a demonstrated interest in economics, business, finance, math, marketing, information technology or a field of study relevant to the business of the Bank. Excellent analytical and interpersonal skills are essential.
Each year, the Bank has 25-30 interns; some return for full-time employment. Past interns emphasize that the program has helped them to hone their skills, learn about the Fed, and build lasting relationships with peers and professionals.
The Chicago Advantage
The Chicago Fed serves the Seventh Federal Reserve District, an economically diverse region covering five states with a large national share of many important economic sectors. You will thrive in a city with world-class research institutions, an international hub of commerce and cultural resources. The Chicago Fed is a place where diverse ideas and contributors collaborate to serve the public good.
The recruiting team sources and does a preliminary screen for interns at key schools in our region. The team also collects intern resumes throughout the year at job fairs. An official posting is currently on our external website.
After the preliminary screens, hiring managers will interview the intern candidates. After a hiring decision is made, the recruiting team will extend the offer and onboard the interns based on their start date. Once they arrive, we will coordinate speakers, summer activities and seminars that create a valuable experience for the intern group.
