Community Engagement & Policy Internship – Hartford City Council

The offices of Councilwoman Tiana Hercules and Councilman Josh Michtom seek to work with student interns to develop or improve policy through direct community engagement and research.

This internship will allow student interns to gain experience with public policy and community engagement. The position will combine research with community engagement by choosing a relevant policy for the student to research and present to members of the Hartford community. Each intern will be focusing on collecting and analyzing relevant information and data relating to a policy priority and finding strategic ways to engage the Hartford community into conversations about their thoughts and opinions about such policy. This specific internship would focus on translating data and results into more commonly understandable language with a more accessible presentation. Tools that will be used include infographics, social media plans, photography, video production, website management, and press outreach. Experience with these is helpful, but training is available. This position is unpaid.
