About The Training

Goals: Provide interns with a larger perspective connecting the issues they care about and work on each day with overarching democracy issues. 

Motivates: We believe it is important that interns’ meaningful work does not end when they leave D.C. We want them to be able to go home and stay engaged in the issues that matter.
