Getting Involved with AFF
The opportunities provided through America’s Future Foundation give me the chance to hone skills and expand my professional network in a way I can’t during the course of my day job. In addition to working with an exciting group of colleagues to brainstorm interesting topics and schedule events, I’m able to take ownership of the issue of my choice. AFF allows me to research and work in a policy space I would not typically get to enjoy, making it an incredibly stimulating and rewarding experience. I know it will serve me well throughout my career, and I’m incredibly grateful to AFF for the opportunity to contribute!
AFF regularly hosts interns in Washington, D.C., but only through partner programs as we are able. If interested, please apply to the Koch Internship Program, the Fund for American Studies, or Students for Liberty.
If you're a young professional quickly becoming an expert in your field and would like an opportunity to speak on one of our panels or at one of our events, please fill out this form to be considered as a potential speaker as needed.
