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.
