At the Economy League, we are committed to fostering an organizational culture built around five core values. 
  • Excellence: We are committed to conducting ourselves to the highest professional standard and producing work of the highest quality.

  • Accountability: We acknowledge responsibility and assume ownership for our decisions, actions, and work products. 

  • Collaboration: Because the issues we focus on are complex, involve competing interests and cut across sectors, disciplines, and geographies, collaboration is critical to our organizational effectiveness.

  • Flexibility: The complex nature of our work and the small size of our staff make flexibility key to our success.

  • Fun: We strive to create and maintain a workplace that is both productive and fun for all of our employees.



The Economy League offers a limited number of paid internship opportunities to graduate students and undergraduate juniors and seniors throughout the year.  (Unpaid internships for academic credit can also be arranged.)


Work hours are flexible; however, we look for interns who can commit to at least two days a week during the academic year and four to five days a week during the summer.


Please email us with your resume, cover letter, and availability.  If applicable, note if you are eligible for work study.
