There are two internships available in Seattle with The Borgen Project, which is dedicated to fighting poverty. The Borgen Project believes that leaders of the most powerful nation on earth should be doing more to address global poverty. They are the innovative, national campaign that is working to make poverty a focus of U.S. foreign policy.

The Borgen Project also has remote internships in publishing, writing, editing, journalism, and politics. Remote internships cannot count for BYU credit, but might still be a good opportunity for students interested in building their resumes.
