About the Internship

Policy for the People's Internship program aims to encourage students to interact with our partner network, alongside being provided with a wide range of opportunities, resources, and support to help organize our policy events.

Expectations/Requirements

  • Attend biweekly meetings (~ 15-20 minutes long each, Tuesdays and Saturdays at 9:30pm U.S. Eastern Standard Time)

    • Mentors/Judges
