NLIHC is seeking applications for our spring policy intern position. Interns are highly valued and fully integrated into our staff work. We seek students passionate about social justice issues, with excellent writing and interpersonal skills.
The policy intern assists the NLIHC policy team by tracking new legislation, attending and summarizing Congressional hearings for the Memo to Members newsletter, participating in visits to Congressional offices, updating the Congressional database, and developing materials for use in lobbying the House and Senate to accomplish NLIHC's mission. Experience or classwork in policy, advocacy, or government affairs a plus.
Spring interns are expected to work 25 hours a week from mid-January to early May. NLIHC provides modest stipends.
A cover letter, resume, and writing sample are required for consideration. In your cover letter, please specify that you are interested in the spring policy internship.
Interested students should send their materials to: Paul Kealey, chief operating officer, National Low Income Housing Coalition, 1000 Vermont Avenue, NW, Washington, DC 20005 via email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
