The National Grange, the nation’s oldest nonprofit advocacy organization working on behalf of agriculture and rural America, is seeking interns.  The National Grange office is located just one block from the White House, easily accessible from the Farragut North and Farragut West metro stations as well as a number of bus routes.

We are in the process of several large-scale projects and seek an organized, reliable, and confident individual to become a part of the team.

While there will be days of endless scanning, data entry and general organizational work, the intern will also help to produce material for our legislative and communications departments, as well as occasionally assisting our various other departments. You will get to interact with some knowledgeable and experienced professionals, learn more about the legislative and lobbying process, public relations, programs planning, fundraising, graphic communications, event planning and marketing.

While the internship is open to all student levels and all majors, a political science, communications, or public policy major might benefit more from the internship. In addition, interns must be at least 18-years-old, eligible to work in the U.S. and willing to submit to a background check, as is the policy of our organization.

This is an unpaid internship; however, we would be happy to coordinate with your university to arrange some course credit. In addition, MetroBenefits – compensation for commuting to and from work – may be available.  Additional scholarship opportunities might be available as well. Interns with a research interest may also submit ideas for projects that could garner support.

Those interested should reply by email to eluttrell@nationalgrange.org with a resume and contact information as well as your prospective start and end date.  More information will be provided during a follow-up interview.
