The Pennsylvania Family Institute is actively recruiting college-student interns for Spring 2017 and Summer 2017 in our downtown Harrisburg offices, two blocks from the state capitol.
The program provides students the opportunity to gain first-hand experience in nonprofit government relations and participate in the daily operations of a policy organization. Interns will become familiar with the intricacies of the Pennsylvania legislative process and the philosophy behind and methodology of implementing pro-family public policies by working side-by-side with PFI’s policy staff. These internships are paid.
Interns will experience some of the legislative process as we work with the state legislature to promote family-friendly policy (depending on how long the legislative session continues into the summer). Preparation and staffing for the City on the Hill Youth Leadership Conference – July 23-29, 2017 will also be a major part of the summer internship program. Other projects will include research, writing, and grassroots mobilization.
Pennsylvania Family Institute is a non-profit research and education organization that focuses on cultural trends and public policies that impact families. Founded in 1989, its mission is to strengthen families by restoring to public life the traditional, foundational principles essential for the well being of society. PFI is associated nationally with Focus on the Family and the Family Research Council, but is governed and supported by individuals and businesses across Pennsylvania.
