Internship Program


A chance to help change the conversation

Convergence Center for Policy Resolution offers full- and part-time internships on a rolling basis for undergraduates, graduate students, and recent graduates who are interested in gaining practical experience in consensus building and public policy. Interns are expected to visibly advance Convergence’s mission by providing substantive and administrative support to the organization.

Because interns work very closely with their respective project teams, we prefer that they volunteer full-time; however, part-time schedule accommodations may be made for students. The preferred duration of an internship is at least 3 months.

Convergence welcomes interns in the fall, spring and summer.
