Policy Intern for Children's Defense Fund

Primary tabs

Since its inception, the Children's Defense Fund has welcomed hundreds of college students and recent graduates to participate as interns in CDF's mission to Leave No Child Behind®. Whether at CDF's national office in Washington, DC, or at one of CDF’s state offices, interns have proven vital to CDF's work. Interns provide administrative and program support to CDF's professional staff; draft memoranda on current and future policy issues, conduct research, track legislative activities, attend hearings and coalition meetings, and participate in a wide-range of other CDF activities.

CDF interns gain knowledge, skills and experience for a lifetime commitment as a child advocate and public policy leader; get an insider's view of non-profit advocacy and become a part of our strong network of servant leaders.

Application Deadline: December 1
