Students hoping to beef up their resumes must decide whether to take unpaid internships that offer college credit or recommendations instead of compensation.
Join us Nov. 20th for our #InternsforChange Rally. We are excited to be joined by Leah Greenberg, Co-Executive Director of Indivisible.
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.
Statement on Pay Our Interns’ 3 Year Anniversary
Pay Our Interns announces its first ever Trailblazer Intern Award.
Pay Our Interns teams up with College to Congress and several other partners to celebrate Congressional Interns.

Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez introduced an amendment that would supply an additional $8 million on top of Rep. Ryan’s proposed increase. The proposal would total the intern fund at over $19 million.
