New America’s Education Policy Program seeks applicants who have a strong interest in apprenticeship and career and technical education for a paid Summer 2018 internship. The intern will primarily assist the program’s full-time staff members with research, data, and policy analysis for issue briefs and policy reports, in addition to writing blogs for the program’s website, EdCentral. Interns must be self-starters who are excited to work both independently and as part of a team on a variety of education-related research projects.
New America’s Education Policy Program is a think-tank industry leader in PreK-12, higher education, and the workforce. The Center on Education and Skills is a research and communications center dedicated to exploring connections between education, skills, economic development and social mobility. The Center’s mission is to strengthen the relationship between education and economic opportunity through improvements to our higher education, technical training, and workforce development systems. The Center on Education and Skills will focus on issues that have been historically marginalized in education policy and research discussions, such as apprenticeship, work-based learning, and career and technical education.
In addition to conducting research and analysis in these areas, interns will have the opportunity to publish their own blog posts and other work, attend events on behalf of New America, and gain exposure to some of the brightest and most ambitious thinkers in the field. They will also have the opportunity to attend in-house events, professional development, and off-the-record policy lunches with fellows and staff from other New America policy programs.
The CESNA intern will work closely with our higher education team, and expertise in either apprenticeship and career and technical education is strongly preferred.
Please submit a cover letter depicting your experience, current resume and a brief (no more than three 3 pages) writing sample. Applications are reviewed on a rolling basis, so early submissions (by Friday, March 30) are recommended.
NO PHONE CALLS OR EMAILS WILL BE ANSWERED.
