Reviews

Policy Intern

June 2020 - November 2020 Washington, DC
“I liked that the work I did was meaningful. I was an intern at the beginning of the COVID-19 pandemic and was given substantial responsibility in curating, analyzing, and exporting information for the general public. I was able to work on multiple projects with employees and interns from various departments. Everyone I worked with was friendly, supportive, open to answer questions, and thoughtfully considered suggestions I made.”

Education Intern

May 2018 - August 2018 Washington, DC
“Working with people with different ideologies than my own and meeting Besty DeVos. ”
