Pay Our Interns

Pay Our Interns is the only bipartisan, 501(c)(3) non-profit organization that advocates for an increase in the amount of paid internships within our government, for-profit, and nonprofit sectors.

POI serves as a research platform, advocacy guide, and internship database for young adults across the country. A young adult’s socioeconomic status should not be a barrier to getting real-world work experience. POI is committed to reducing the gap between education and work experience by partnering with foundations and universities to empower them with the means to prepare young adults for internship opportunities.
