Building Future Jewish Leaders

June 23, 2020

The Simon Wiesenthal Center is proud to announce the launch of its 2020 Government Advocacy Internship Program (GAIP).

GAIP is entering its fifth year as a one-of-a-kind program in educating the next generation on the practical skills necessary to be effective leaders in Jewish communal advocacy.

Since its inception, the program has served 80 college and graduate school-aged students from across the country. GAIP provides first-hand experience in the mechanics of state and municipal government, politics, media relations, inter-group relationship-building, grassroots organizing, and other strategic necessities for real-time effective activism.

In addition to working each day, the interns attend regular leadership training sessions given by top lobbyists, issue-based advocates and Jewish communal leaders. Further, each intern is mentored by a public-policy expert.
