We are organizing young people in DC and around the nation to walk out in order to protest the inaccessibility of internships across America and promote the idea that interns deserve compensation for their work.
Earlier this week POI announced the first-ever Trailblazer Award that will be given to one (1) intern who is nominated by their employer for demonstrating exemplary work ethic. POI has the distinguished privilege of announcing that the award will be named in honor of Congresswoman Ayanna Pressley (D-MA), who began her career as an unpaid intern for the Congressional district she now represents.
