The Zero Hunger Internship Program is a paid summer leadership development opportunity for college students who are interested in federal anti-hunger policy. Interns work in Washington, D.C., for 10 weeks at organizations that focus on domestic or global hunger. In addition to participating in leadership development training through the Congressional Hunger Center, interns also attend a five-part Summer Seminar Series about domestic and global hunger, public policy, and advocacy. The Summer 2019 cohort will consist of 8-10 motivated individuals committed to careers in the anti-hunger field.
The program allows undergraduate students or individuals who have graduated within a year a paid opportunity for on-the-job training and a robust learning experience. Zero Hunger Interns learn about the anti-hunger field, policy, program implementation, development and fundraising, and nonprofit management through their internship placements.
