Internship Openings

Communications Intern

The Center for Community Progress seeks a curious and detail-oriented applicant to serve as Communications Intern this summer, joining a small team of passionate thought leaders and technical experts who care deeply about racial equity and justice. Applicants must be based in or able to commute to the office in downtown Washington, DC. This internship is a ten-week, four days (32 hours) per week hybrid in-office/remote position and offers a $25/hour stipend. Please review the full description and application requirements here before applying, and then fill out the application below.

As a member of the Communications team, the Communications Intern will have a hands-on role in supporting the external and internal communications needs of the organization, with a focus on audience engagement and social media. Individuals with a strong eye for detail, an interest in developing a generalist communications skillset, and strong problem-solving and interpersonal communication skills are encouraged to apply.

The Communications Intern position is for a candidate who has some amount of previous experience in writing for broad audiences and who is interested in pursuing a career in communications. An individual entering their junior or senior of college who has completed a previous internship is one example of a candidate who fits this profile. However, enrollment in a degree program is not a requirement to be considered for this internship, and we encourage candidates from non-traditional education and employment backgrounds to apply.

Community Progress is committed to providing a meaningful and educational internship experience and will work with the Communications Intern to determine what responsibilities will further their professional development. Applications are due March 27, 2023 at 11:59 PM ET.
