The Eleison Group is looking for fall, spring, and summer interns and graduate fellows. Intern and fellow time will be split between Eleison and one of Eleison’s major clients, the American Values Network.
The American Values Network (www.americanvaluesnetwork.org) is a faith-based non-profit founded on the belief that it is possible to align what is right with what works in the political and economic world, and that doing so is the best way to bring about lasting change. AVN specializes in mobilizing progressive communities and crafting messaging and outreach campaigns that build bridges with middle Americans around shared values.
Applicants will need to understand the American church culture and have an interest in elected politics and issue advocacy. Applicants need to have very good research and writing skills, be creative thinkers, and have the ability to work independently.
We believe our undergrad intern and graduate fellow program is one of the best in DC.Intern/fellows play a significant role in our projects and campaign, and we take our mentorship and commitment to our students after they finish our program very seriously. Responsibilities will involve research for policy papers and memos, preparation for district meetings, help with press work, data collection and development, and some administrative duties. Special attention will be paid toward assisting students with academic credit, and we can work with students and their academic programs to turn intern projects into independent studies or possibly honors theses. There are two internship opportunities. Full-time internships/fellowships at the office in DC and part-time internships that can be completed remotely while in school.
Applicants should send a cover letter, resume, and 1-2 page writing sample on a political or religious topic to email@example.com
