Paid/Remote Advocacy Summer Internship

Feighan Team

ABOUT US: The Feighan Team is an advocacy and consulting firm committed to providing mission-driven community development organizations and social enterprises with the strategic advice, insights, and tools needed to implement successful advocacy campaigns. We work to make sure our clients have a seat at the table and a voice that is heard and considered in Washington. As a firm, we are committed to demystifying the legislative process and empowering our clients by showing them when and how they can effectively impact the debate. We work to establish our clients as the trusted advocates who Members of Congress, state legislators, and other policymakers can turn to for information and on-the-ground insights.

ABOUT THE INTERNSHIP: The Feighan Team is now accepting applications for a paid, remote summer intern who will work closely with our small, tight-knit team. The COVID-19 pandemic brought renewed attention to the critical role that small businesses play in our communities and our economy. As a summer advocacy intern, you will be leading a project to gather and organize stories from small business owners about their experiences with various financing products. The intern will contact small business owners from across the country, conduct interviews, and draft summaries of interview findings. The stories you collect will be integral to helping Members of Congress understand and champion the issues that entrepreneurs face.

In addition to leading a project on story collection, you will also assist with the firm’s day-to-day operations e.g. troubleshooting technology problems, organizing internal and external filing systems, and other administrative tasks.

Our firm values the importance of thoughtful mentorship. Over the course of your internship, we will provide the guidance you need to develop valuable career skills and to gain firsthand experience in public policy.
