YAL HQ Internships & Fellowships

Website Young Americans for Liberty

The mission of Young Americans for Liberty is the identify, educate, train, and mobilize youth activists committed to winning on principle.


Unlike some organizations, YAL assigns more than just entry-level work, though you will be given some. Interns must complete important tasks which require them to manage their time, utilize their organizational skills, and exhibit a strong work ethic. YAL is only interested in motivated, hard-working YAL members who can meet deadlines and perform immediately at a high level.

In many ways, working for YAL is a lifestyle and can open doors for you, especially if you want to work in the liberty movement.

During the internship, you will have the opportunity to work closely with full-time staff members, develop a semester project, and learn more about what goes into running a student-based political non-profit.

This opportunity is perfect for someone looking to develop their professional skill set and get a broad overview of what it’s like to work in the liberty movement.


A Fellow varies from an Intern in that they are directly working with the Director of their department and given more difficult tasks related to their specific field.

We are looking for individuals with proven experience in said areas. With greater power comes more responsibility. Individuals will be held to a higher standard and expected to take on tasks, which a full-time employee would generally be in charge of. For this reason, you will be gaining real work experience that will surely transfer over to a more permanent job.

In addition, you will be encouraged to find new ways to improve each department whether it’s finding a better process or implementing new structures.


Interns earn $1,800 per month through the Charles Koch Institute’s (CKI) Professional Education Program, which they end up being placed — this is one of the best-paid internships in DC. Housing is not provided.

This is a full-time position located in Arlington, VA. YAL’s office hours are 9:00 AM to 6:00 PM every weekday — although one day each week will be spent at the Charles Koch Institute for professional development training.

Fall term typically runs early September through early December

Spring term typically runs late January through early May

Summer term typically runs early June through early August
