How does karma work?
The system is simple: you receive karma (sort of like a credit) when you help others. If you're short on karma, you can do any of the following to earn more:
- 1 karma for each 👍 upvote on a question you post
- 1 karma for each 👍 upvote on an answer you post
if your answer is marked accepted
- 10 karma for reviewing an essay
- 10 karma if your essay review is rated 5 ⭐️
You can then use your karma to submit an essay for review or guarantee an expert answer on Q&A.
Tossing in my vote for political campaigns. Internships can be pretty hard for high school students to get depending on your age but I know some friends have had good success with political campaigns. While not necessarily focused on government/legal/political you might be able to find something from these sites. https://www.internships.com/high-school/california and https://www.indeed.com/q-High-School-Intern-l-California-jobs.html
As someone who volunteers on presidential and congressional campaigns... one thing you can do for internships is work for the campaigns. Just email around... sign up for mailing lists. For instance, if you go to (insert candidate name).com you can sign up for canvassing shifts and phone banking shifts.
Also you can intern at congressional offices. I worked at the office of a US representative this past summer and it was an enlightening experience. If you are super into politics you should go to a congressional person's webpage and ask to intern at their offices.
Hope this helps.
