The Washington office of one of the premier American Jewish non-profits is seeking summer interns who are looking to combine their interests in Jewish communal work and national politics. JFNA’s legislative agenda focuses on a variety of issues that includes, but is not limited to, bolstering retirement and aging health policies; protecting programs for vulnerable populations, such as domestic violence victims, human trafficking victims, people with disabilities, refugees, and low income families; safeguarding non-profits from terrorism; and more.
JFNA interns will work on a wide range of social service focused public policy issues. Through this internship, interns will learn innovative approaches to stimulate community interest by organizing and informing local grassroots networks of Jewish federations and affiliated social service agencies. The day-to-day responsibilities of a JFNA internship includes, but is not limited to, attending congressional hearings, taking part in advocacy/leadership training days, compiling and analyzing surveys, and researching and writing on a variety of existing and proposed policies.
Summer internships are full-time, and interns are offered a stipend. In lieu of a stipend, we also offer college credit if allowed by an individual’s university/college.
If interested, please forward a cover letter, resume, brief writing sample, and references to interndcoffice@JewishFederations.org.
