Internship program

CRA Internship Program

The next generation of American leaders is growing up in a critical point in history, one which has launched a full assault on the core principles that used to be the bedrock of our nation and long since made America thrive as a global leader. Our Judeo-Christian values, the necessity of human dignity, the importance of law and order for a just society, and the Founders’ vision for the country have all become foreign concepts under a tidal wave of progressive ideologies. 

Central to restoring a consensus of a nation under God is investing in the next generation of leaders. Many students, particularly those in the gap between school and entering the workforce, have not been given a foundation for understanding our country’s history, the ideologies permeating our culture, and how to think critically about them. They play a unique role in shaping the direction of our country – which is why, now more than ever before, it is vital they are brought in to serve our nation, learn from those who’ve gone before them, and begin leading by example. 

The CRA internship program is a semester-long program that involves young leaders in the fight to restore America and defend the values we hold dear as conservatives. Applicants must be hard-working, intuitive, & self-starting. Successful interns must be eager to roll up their sleeves, work diligently on their assigned projects, and take advantage of all this internship provides. In doing so, they will gain a solid understanding of top policy issues driving the movement, the chance to be part of the fight to change the status quo perpetuated by Washington elites, and invaluable professional experience.

Intern Responsibilities 

Interning at the Center for Renewing America allows students to get in the trenches alongside respected conservatives, from former White House senior officials to some of the best and brightest movement leaders. Students will get hands-on experience and receive personal and professional mentorship from current leaders in D.C. including former senior White House officials. At least once a semester, interns will have the opportunity to sit down with Former Trump White House Budget Director and CRA President Russ Vought.  

Interns will work in a variety of departments including but not limited to Administrative, Communications, Policy, and our C-4 organization. Special emphasis is placed on interns with extensive graphic design skill, familiarity with Canva/InDesign/Adobe, and social media experience. 

Typical intern classes are made up of 3-4 students. This allows interns to work alongside their peers and participate in our intern programming, which includes professional development opportunities and integration into networking events in our nation’s Capitol. 

How to Apply

Applicants must be at least 18 years of age by the start date of the internship semester. This is a full-time internship and applicants should expect to be available to work 9-5, five days a week, with limited exceptions. The internship is unpaid and housing is not available. Interns can expect to come into the office to complete their work.
