The interns will have the opportunity to delve into a variety of projects and gain valuable knowledge and understanding of key issues facing the nation.

Typical responsibilities include: contributing to memos, blog posts, columns, event summaries, and reports; carrying out web-based research on issue areas; compiling and manipulating data in Excel; rapid-response communications; updating fact sheets, talking points, and documents on topics of current pertinence; and enhancing the team's social media presence. Interns are encouraged to write on a subject of their choice either as a contributor to a larger final piece or as an individual author of a column, op-ed, or blog post for the website. Interns on the Early Childhood Policy team are also encouraged to take full advantage of the many events at American Progress, as well as events, briefings, and hearings that take place on the Hill and throughout Washington, D.C. Should have strong research, writing, and organizational skills and should pay careful attention to detail. Law students are considered.
