Join the Latin America Working Group (LAWG) as an Advocacy Intern and assist with our efforts to promote a human rights-based approach to U.S. policy towards Latin America. You will gain an understanding of politics, economics, social issues, and human rights in Latin America; exposure to how the federal government works and how foreign policy is made; experience working in a professional environment through the lens of a D.C.-based nonprofit; and skills in online grassroots political organizing.

The internship includes some administrative tasks but leans more heavily to programmatic ones. The office is fast-paced, but the staff are friendly and approachable.

Specific tasks include, but are not limited to, assisting in research and writing of blog posts and other literature, attending meetings and congressional hearings, posting to social media, and assisting staff with daily and long-term projects.


To be eligible, applicants must:

  • Classification: Freshman, sophomore, junior, senior, or recent graduate/other
  • Candidate must be enrolled in any major at the university and have qualified GPA
  • Applicants must have a strong interest in the understanding of politics, economics, social issues, and human rights in Latin America
