an editor for the Orange & Blue, the UFstudent magazine. We're doing a story
for the Spring edition about students who've done amazing internships.
Anyone from any academic program would work. We're looking for internships
that would make other students say, "Wow, I didn't even know that was
possible." (for example, students who have had internships at Conan O'Brien,
the Yankees, or the Guggenheim, PLEASE email us.)  If you think your story
is for us, please contact me at 352-378-4637 or at the email address

10. GAINESVILLE CHILD ADVOCACY CENTER NEEDS VOLUNTEERS FOR CONFERENCE: I
wanted to inform honors students about a great opportunity.  The Gainesville
Child Advocacy Center will be having its Fourth Annual "A Community Approach
to ! Child Protection" conference from 8am-4pm on Friday, October 24th.  The
conference will be held at Trinity United Methodist Church.  This conference
aims to educate people in various fields who work with children--
psychologists, doctors, nurses, law enforcement, attorneys, students, and
more-- in the goal of preventing child abuse and protecting children.
Following a moving Keynote talk, participants will have the opportunity to
attend three workshops (chosen from a list of 20) on a wide range of  topics
related to child abuse prevention and treatment. Workshops include:
Identifying and Reporting Abuse and Neglect; Why Children Act Out Sexually;
Peer Mediation Program; Effects of Domestic Violence on Child Abuse;
Understanding and Identifying Substance Abuse Issues; Internet Sex Crimes
Against Children; Forensic Interviewing; Working with Culturally Diverse
Children and Families,  and many more

We are seeking 15-20 volunteers to help with the introduction of speakers as
well as attending the workshops as a "volunteer liaison" (for any
troubleshooting that's necessary). Last year, many honors students were
involved with this program, and had a wonderful experience. For those who
cannot attend for the whole day, half day options are possible--but many end
up wanting to stay!
Here are some great benefits to attending as a volunteer:
- you are exempt from paying the $45 conference fee (which most
professionals attending from the community have to pay)
-you get to attend 3 workshops of your choice-- they are very interesting
and have even inspired some students in their coursework and majors.
-you will get to hear our keynote speaker, Jennie Stultz, Mayor of Gastonia,
NC.
-you get to meet renowned professionals in their particular fields-- health
professionals, lawyers involved with human/childrens' rights-- from UF and
across the community.  It's a great networking opportunity, if you are
looking for volunteer positions,research, jobs, internships, etc.!
-it's fun and educational!
If you are interested in being a volunteer during this conference, please
contact me at 352-375-6664 or email [log in to unmask]  Volunteers will need to
attend a short informational meeting --time, place, date tba--  You can also
learn more about the conference at www.childadvocacycentergainesville.org
