Capitol Pathways is seeking applicants for its spring 2022 (January-May) internship offerings. Capitol Pathways is a paid policy internship program for college students who identify as Black, Indigenous, and People of Color (BIPOC). With the long-term goal of making our government truly representative of our diverse communities, the program opens access to the Minnesota Capitol and policymaking to the next generation of BIPOC leaders. Through this program, students gain leadership, legislative and professional development training alongside an immersive hands-on paid internship experience with an organization working in policy during the legislative session.

Rethos has been a Capitol Pathways host organization since 2020, and will be again for the 2022 Legislative session. Application to Capitol Pathways does not guarantee placement with Rethos but we’d love to meet students who share our goals and interests! Other hosts have included MnDOT, Minnesota Housing Partnership, Minnesota Center for Environmental Advocacy, Twin Cities Habitat for Humanity, and even individual Legislators. This internship presents opportunities to learn more about the policy levers at the state capitol – applicable for students involved in grassroots advocacy in any field.
Interested applicants should contact Kalia at Capitol Pathways ASAP to learn about the application process and what would need to be submitted by the Dec. 10 deadline.
