NHSA Internship Program

Government Affairs Intern

As part of NHSA’s External Affairs team, the government affairs intern will assist NHSA staff with national and grassroots advocacy, legislative work, and policy research. As an active member of our team, interns will acquire hands-on experience and participate in meaningful projects. The government affairs intern will have the opportunity to attend congressional briefings and hearings, participate in team meetings and discussion, and will participate in bi-weekly professional development lunches. They will also gain experience through:

  • Assisting in regular communication from NHSA to offices on Capitol Hill;
  • Tracking and collaborating on the planning of NHSA’s advocacy efforts;
  • Updating NHSA’s legislative and advocacy database; and
  • Researching current legislation affecting Head Start and early childhood education.
