Government Advocacy Internship

Simon Wiesenthal Center

The Wiesenthal Government Advocacy Internship will expose students to public policy, legislation and advocacy to combat antisemitism, fight bigotry and stereotyping and ensure proper legal and de-facto treatment of minority communities.

Wiesenthal Government Advocacy Interns will:

  • Receive hands-on experience through internship placements in the offices of local & state legislators and governmental agencies.
  • Participate in weekly intensive workshops with elected officials, top lobbyists, coalition builders, and high-level Jewish communal leaders to develop the skills necessary to become effective activists.
  • Be partnered with mentors who shape front-line policy decisions to gain insight and guidance from an insider perspective.
  • Receive a stipend of $1,500 upon completion of the program.

The Wiesenthal Government Advocacy Program runs from June 17-August 9, 2019.
