HALT accepts college and graduate school interns to work in our Washington, DC offices for the fall semester, the spring semester and the summer. We generally hire two to three interns during the fall and spring semesters and four interns for the summer. Full- and part-time internships are available.
Interns work on all aspects of the organization's projects, including writing and research, education, legislation and advocacy efforts. Working closely with our program staff, each intern is responsible for one major research project during the semester, contributes at least one article to HALT's quarterly newsletter and has the opportunity to participate in our educational and advocacy projects.
Benefits of HALT's Internship:
- Minimal grunt work! HALT interns are engaged almost exclusively in substantive work. You won't make copies for anyone but yourself.
- Great location! In the heart of downtown Washington, DC.
- Short commute! One block from metro (Farragut North and Farragut West stations).
- Fun! Small, close-knit staff that is always available to answer interns' questions, or provide feedback.
