Under the supervision of the marketing & communications director, the marketing & public relations interns at the Alice Paul Institute have many opportunities to build and refine their skills as communications professionals. API works with each intern to assess their individual strengths and craft a plan to develop skills that align with their professional goals.

Internships are crafted based on both the goals of the overseeing department and the interests and professional goals of each intern. While interns support the work in their overseeing department, API is committed to soft skill training in office workflow and etiquette and trying to provide networking opportunities in each semester.
