Congressional Hunger Center Spring 2017 Internships

The Congressional Hunger Center (CHC) is a 501(c)3 nonprofit that works to make issues of domestic and international hunger a priority to policymakers in the U.S. government, and to raise a new generation of leaders to fight against hunger and poverty. Our mission is to train and inspire leaders who work to end hunger, and to advocate public policies that create a food secure world. We strive to be a leader in the movement to ensure access to food as a basic human right for all people. We create and nurture a community of innovative and inspiring leaders who act as change agents, bridging the gap between grassroots efforts and national and international public policy to provide access to nutritious, affordable and culturally appropriate food. We accomplish this mission through our advocacy, policy and coalition work, and our two leadership development programs; the Bill Emerson National Hunger Fellows Program, and the Mickey Leland International Hunger Fellows Program.

For spring 2017, the Congressional Hunger Center is accepting applications for the following intern positions:

  •  Program Interns — Our National and International Fellowship Programs need additional resources to advance their efforts in areas such as alumni tracking and engagement, partnership outreach, applicant recruitment, knowledge management, and research. 
  • Development Intern — Interns support special projects and events to help CHC raise funds to support our work. Projects may include conducting donor prospect research, scheduling donor meetings for the Executive Director, assisting in the development of grant proposals or donor reports, or assisting in the coordination of our annual awards ceremony or fundraiser in June.

CHC internships are designed to align the talents of our interns with the needs of the organization. By applying for a spring 2017 internship, you are submitting a general application for the program. Your completed internship application will be used to gauge your skills, areas of interest, and time availability. Interviews will be conducted with top candidates. To be eligible, you must be a currently enrolled college, community college, or graduate student, or have graduated less than one year ago. Once an assignment is confirmed, an internship plan will be created. College credit may be available. Most internships are unpaid, but some financial assistance may be available to help subsidize local transportation costs. Spring Internships typically run from January through May with specific start and end dates finalized upon selection.
