The Pennsylvania Family Institute is actively recruiting college-student interns for Spring 2018 and Summer 2018 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). Assist with development of 2018 Voter’s Guide and other election related projects – follow-up phone calls with candidates, candidate research, and other data collection. Preparation and staffing for the City on the Hill Youth Leadership Conference – July 22-28, 2018 will also be a major part of the summer internship program. Other projects will include research, writing, and grassroots mobilization.
The Mission of the Pennsylvania Family Institute is to strengthen families by restoring to public life the traditional, foundational principles and values essential for the well-being of society. We are the only full-time, professionally staffed non-profit organization representing family values in the state capitol. We encourage responsible citizenship and involvement in civic affairs to promote respect for life, family, marriage and religious liberty.
