Position Overview
Pay Our Interns has been successful in advocating for a Congressional internship fund to ensure interns get paid on the Hill. But we also want to ensure pay for interns elsewhere in government, including on Congressional committees, within federal agencies, and eventually in state houses. The Federal Affairs Lead will provide leadership and direction to engage with government leaders on a full-time basis. They will guide legislative operations, and maintain relationships with Congressional offices. Because we are a young organization (we just turned 4!), the Lead will have the opportunity to create and advance POI’s legislative agenda . We need someone who can remain agile and flexible. The ideal candidate is passionate about workforce development, higher education, and creating equitable learning experiences through paid internships.
