The National Grange - a nonprofit fraternal organization with its roots in agriculture, community service and rural advocacy - is seeking interns! As we prepare for our 150th Birthday in 2017, we have so many exciting things going on and welcome qualified applicants for on-site internships at our headquarters in Washington, D.C., located just one block from the White House, or remote/tele-work.

We seek organized, reliable, confident individuals to become a part of the team immediately or for their spring or summer 2017 semester.

Interns will produce material for our communications, IT, legislative, events, trademark/brand management, membership and sales departments. They will interact with some of the best people in the country - our members - and learn more about the legislative and lobbying process, public relations, advertising, educational program development, fundraising, graphic communications, website and social media management, event planning and marketing.

Examples of projects interns will have opportunities to work on include

  • the re-launch and initial months of Grange Radio, a web radio station with music and news from Granges and rural communities
  • a rural/community interest magazine with a Grange focus
  • historical digitization and preservation
  • tour scheduling and planning for our National President
  • Legislative and advocacy outreach through our annual Fly-In
  • Quilt and craft show coordination, vendor relations and more
  • Academic conference organization and planning
  • Gala and smaller birthday celebration event planning

Internships are open to all student levels and all majors, interns must be at least 18 years old, eligible to work in the U.S. and willing to submit to a background check, as is the policy of our organization.

This internship comes with a stipend, negotiable and variable based on skills, hours committed and other expected outcomes of the internship. We also offer MetroBenefits (compensation for commuting to and from work, an excellent benefit as the Grange building is easily accessible from the Farragut North and Farragut West metro stations as well as a number of bus routes). Also available may be significantly or completely subsidized housing for the duration of the internship. Additional scholarship opportunities may also be available for interns. Interns with a research interest may also submit ideas for projects that could garner support.

We are also happy to accept unpaid interns seeking credit at their higher education institution.
