The Education Trust: writing, public relations, governmental affairs

**We are now accepting internship applications for the fall. To ensure full consideration, please submit application by September 15, 2007.**

About the Education Trust
The Education Trust was created to promote high academic achievement for all students, at all levels—pre-kindergarten through college. While we know that all schools and colleges could better serve their students, our work focuses on the schools and colleges most often left behind in plans to improve education: those serving African-American, Latino, Native American, and low-income students. Our mission is to close the achievement gap that separates low-income students and students of color from their peers.

Education Trust staff work side-by-side with educators, policymakers, parents, community and business leaders who are trying to transform schools and colleges into institutions that genuinely serve all students. We bring lessons learned in local communities back to Washington to help inform national policy debates.

Internship Program
The Education Trust internship program is for individuals who believe that ALL students can achieve at high levels and want to work as part of a team committed to that goal. The program is designed for recent graduates and graduate students who are capable of doing staff-level work under minimal supervision. Interns are treated as members of the staff and are expected to perform a wide variety of tasks.

Interns work in close consultation with designated Education Trust staff to develop and execute projects that will advance the organization’s agenda while allowing interns to broaden their professional skills and experiences. Intern projects are based on intern qualifications and interests as well as the needs of the organization. Currently, we are seeking interns for the following areas:

Government Affairs
Assist in:
o the monitoring of federal legislation—including NCLB and related bills—critical to boosting overall achievement and closing the achievement gap; and,
o the development and dissemination of materials to educate members of Congress and the public about the causes of and remedies for the achievement gap.

Assist in:
o the monitoring and tracking of media coverage about K-12 and higher education issues; and,
