As part of the YBF Internship programme, the Young Britons’ Foundation has placed three of our alumni with the Leadership Institute’s Intern Programme. Widely regarding as one of the best internships in Washington DC, the Leadership Institute provides an exceptional introduction to political campaigns.
Interns are placed in various Leadership Institute departments including LI Studios, Events, External Affairs, Political Training, International Training, Campus Reform, Employment Placement Services, Technology, Grassroots, Development, Online Programs, and more. Interns receive personal mentoring from their supervisors and complete high-priority projects.
Interns attend all LI trainings free of charge, host conservative leaders at private weekly dinners, visit Members of Congress on Capitol Hill, and experience all that D.C. has to offer.
Since the start of YBF in 2003, we have placed numerous students in internship programmes in both Washington DC and Westminster. These students have gone on to work in media, politics and academia on both sides of the Atlantic.
Megan comes from the Isle of Wight and is a long-standing supporter of YBF, having attending a number of events including YBF8 and the 2012 Parliamentary Rally. She also travelled to Washington DC this summer for the YBF US Summer Conference.
