Now Available: 2017 CNAY Summer Internship Application

Here at the Center for Native American Youth (CNAY) we are excited to announce that the application for our 2017 summer internship is now live!

This internship is a great opportunity for those interested in participating in meaningful work in Indian Country and learning about the nonprofit world. Applicants must be interested in American Indian and Alaska Native issues, and preferably have some experience working with tribal organizations, federal partners, or policy-makers.

Kara Roanhorse (Navajo Nation), CNAY’s current intern, says “As an intern at CNAY, I feel personally and professionally motivated to advocate on behalf of my fellow Native youth. Throughout this spring, I worked alongside staff to help recognize the incredible and encouraging stories of Native youth. Those experiences remain the most memorable and humbling part of my time at CNAY. This is an incredible organization in Washington, D.C. who advocates and recognizes the strengths and passions of Native youth. I am very grateful and proud to be part of a very special and dedicated team. I highly recommend applying to CNAY’s internship!”

The internship is located in Washington DC at The Aspen Institute, and will require 15-20 hours of work per week. It is a paid internship where you will work directly with our team on communications, policy research, and program-specific tasks. We are looking for a self-starter with great written and verbal communication skills. Click here to access the application.
