One very important goal of American Progress is to inspire and educate the next generation of progressive Americans. American Progress offers full- and part-time internships each summer and academic semester. All undergraduate and masters-level students and J.D. and Ph.D. candidates are eligible to apply. Successful applicants will be bright, highly motivated scholars with strong academic records and an interest and aptitude for public policy and/or political communication. Interns will be directly engaged with the organization’s policy experts and participate in a variety of activities, including research, writing, and web-based projects. They will also assist staff with administrative tasks and help organize the organization’s many conferences and events.

Type of Internship: Nonprofit Organization, Political Advocacy, Think Tank

I interned at the Center for American Progress (CAP) in Washington D.C. for the first half of this year. CAP is a progressive think tank that produces policy and advocacy. I worked with the Women’s Initiative team, where I did research and note taking for D.C.’s feminist experts (badasses/Michelle Obama’s friends). I watched and learned from some of the most essential movers and shakers of women’s economic and health policy.
