Internship posted by: Center for Effective Government
Posted on: August 6, 2013
The Center for Effective Government (formerly OMB Watch) seeks an environmental policy intern to work on environmental right-to-know and other issues involving government openness. The intern will work with staff to make sure that citizens have a right to know what their government does, how decisions are made, and how to make their voices heard.
For thirty years the Center for Effective Government has been working to build an open, accountable government that invests in the common good, protects people and the environment, and advances the national priorities defined by an active, informed citizenry. Our vision is one of a just and democratic society in which every individual can thrive.
To ensure government is effective and responsive to the priorities of the American people, we conduct policy research and develop policy proposals; create tools to encourage citizen participation and government accountability; and build broad-based coalitions to advance these values. To ensure the American people understand the vital role of government, we produce and disseminate educational tools and communications materials.
We are a resource for policymakers, the media, advocacy groups, community organizations, and the public.
Internship Responsibilities Include:
The Center for Effective Government is an equal opportunity employer and does not discriminate against any employee or applicant for employment on the basis of race, color, national or ethnic origin, religion, sex, age, handicap, pregnancy, sexual orientation, or veteran status.
