Are you a passionate and driven LGBTQ+ undergraduate student looking to make a real impact in the world? The LGBTQ+ Victory Institute's Victory Congressional Internship is offering a life-changing opportunity for outstanding LGBTQ+ students like you. Join us for an 8-week internship on Capitol Hill, along with weekly leadership development activities in the heart of Washington, DC.
About the Internship:
The Victory Congressional Internship aims to develop the next generation of LGBTQ+ public leaders by providing hands-on experience and valuable insights into the federal legislative process. You will have the chance to intern with a member of the LGBT Equality Caucus or an LGBTQ-friendly member of the U.S. Congress, learning firsthand how policy decisions are made at the highest level.
Empowering LGBTQ+ Leaders:
We are committed to nurturing informed decision-makers and influential leaders who can bring about positive change in their communities and beyond. To ensure you can fully focus on your growth and development, we provide a paid stipend, housing, and cover transportation to and from D.C. Financial concerns should not stand in the way of your aspirations – the LGBTQ+ Victory Institute takes care of housing expenses at no cost to you.
A Comprehensive Leadership Program:
Our internship program is not just about the internship itself. It includes a weekly educational and leadership development program that spans various policy-making careers. Engage with subject-matter experts from diverse working sectors across the District of Columbia, exploring topics such as personal leadership, LGBTQ+ history and advocacy, community engagement and service, and public policy and government.
International LGBTQ Leaders Conference:
In December 2024, you will have the unique opportunity to attend the LGBTQ Victory Institute’s annual International LGBTQ Leaders Conference. Join hundreds of openly LGBTQ+ leaders in government, politics, advocacy, business, and community organizations for three days of training, skills-building, networking, and engaging discussions.
Program Dates and Expectations:
The spring program will begin with move-in on Wednesday, May 29, 2024, and will run through move-out on Sunday, July 28, 2024. As a committed intern, you are expected to be available to work during traditional business hours, approximately 40 hours per week.
