Overview

The Center for American Progress is an independent nonpartisan educational institute dedicated to improving the lives of Americans through progressive ideas and action. As progressives, we believe America is a land of boundless opportunity, where people can better themselves, their children, their families, and their communities through education, hard work, and the freedom to climb the ladder of economic mobility. We believe an open and effective government can champion the common good over narrow self-interest, harness the strength of our diversity, and secure the rights and safety of its people. And we believe our nation must always be a beacon of hope and strength to the rest of the world. Progressives are idealistic enough to believe change is possible and practical enough to make it happen.

Details

Interns will directly engage with the organization’s policy experts and participate in a variety of activities, including trainings, research, writing, and web-based projects designed to enhance their professional skills. They will gain hands-on experience by directly participating in the many diverse activities in which progressive nonprofits engage.
