We are committed to empowering young women and men through practical work experience and mentorship. Our internship program is designed to expose our interns to the various aspects of the Commission’s work and to legislative activity in our state. Part of the lifeblood of our commission, interns and volunteers help carry out the mission of the PCSW.
What would I do at the PCSW?
Past intern projects have included:
♦ Planning and implementing Take Our Daughters and Sons to Work Day for the State Legislature
♦ Writing, editing, and updating our Selected Highlights of Women’s History publication
♦ Drafting legislative fact sheets
♦ Researching, charting, and writing our Facts About the Status of Women in Connecticut publication
Internships at the PCSW may be especially beneficial for undergraduate students interested in:
- Women’s Studies
- Political Science
Internship are also beneficial for graduate students interested in:
- Law school
- Social Work
- Public Policy
When can I work with the PCSW?
Although we are willing to work with any individual and his or her scheduling needs, we find that our internships typically mirror a semester schedule. Therefore, students usually intern for one semester, either in the fall, spring, or summer. Internship are only available during regular working hours. Evening and weekend hours are not currently offered.
I’m interested. What’s next?
We are not currently accepting internship applications for Fall or Winter of 2012/2013.
