Civic Advocacy Internship

Applications for the 2021-2022 WIDL Civic Advocacy Internship are open! Apply to join the student led and guided team that will be sharing its voice with international audiences this year! Supervised by Kaelin Hirschi, the Civic Advocacy interns will speak at the UN NGO Commission on the Status of Women on issues they determine to be the most pressing. Among other activities, interns will also spend two semesters learning the ins and outs of lobbying in Utah which includes attending legislative sessions and speaking at committee meetings in Salt Lake. Come learn how to effectively interact with existing systems of government and influence at many different levels. Meetings for the internship will take place weekly on Tuesdays from 6:00-8:00pm and will regularly take place over zoom, though a calendar with in person meeting dates will be provided. There is no fee or cost to participate.

Applications are open to all elite students until September 10th. Join us this year to amplify your voice along with the voices of your peers as an intern for the WIDL Civic Advocacy program!   Click the button above to apply!
