State Senator Daniel Squadron seeks Legislative Interns for his Albany Office for the upcoming legislative session (January- June). Senator Squadron is an aggressive champion of reform in Albany, affordable housing in NYC, a top-notch education system, parks reform, investment in sustainable transportation, and LGBTQ equality, among many other priorities. At 35, he is the second-youngest member of the New York State Senate. His district includes Lower Manhattan and parts of Brooklyn.

Legislative Interns in Senator Squadron’s office will work closely with members of his staff based on specific interests. This may include advocacy, legislative research, scheduling, communications and media, correspondence, event planning and office management. Students will be exposed to various components of the Senate office, will attend hearings and meetings, and will participate in various data-driven projects. Legislative Interns are expected to work 12-25 hours weekly for at least 2 months.

Successful Legislative Intern candidates are self-starters who will be able to work at least two/three days per week, have strong research, communication, writing, and organizational skills, as well as a passion for government.

Note: While the internship is unpaid, we will happily accommodate students who seek to gain credit or outside funding.
