Strategic Partnerships and Communications Intern

Advocates for Youth


Advocates for Youth is dedicated to creating programs and promoting policies which help young people make informed and responsible decisions about their sexual and reproductive health. We provide information, training, and advocacy to youth-serving organizations, policy makers, and the media in the U.S. and internationally. Interns support this mission and are treated as contributing staff members.


The Strategic Partnerships and Communications Intern will provide key support in a collaborative messaging project with reproductive health, rights and justice organizations around the country.  The project will build upon public opinion research addressing young people and sexual and reproductive health and rights and policy priorities, as well as related communications and social media campaigns designed to support these issues. The two areas of focus of the project are: 1) reframing the negative narrative around pregnant and parenting young people; and 2) young people’s access to reproductive health services, with a focus on implementation of the Affordable Care Act (ACA).

  • Assist in managing logistics for multiple conference calls and at least one in-person convening.
  • Participate in conference calls, convenings and regular meetings.
  • Conduct research on messaging being used by partners in the field.
  • Collect communications materials and other messages being used by partners in the field.
