The Summer Politics Academy offers a unique internship program that embodies the Harvard Student Agencies mission of learning through doing. We offer SPA alumni the opportunity to run a weekend version of the Summer Politics Academy at their hometowns or schools. SPA will design all program content and curriculum for the weekend academy which shall take the form of a weekend-long policy hackathon. Alumni will work closely with the SPA director Harvard Student Agencies in conducting outreach within the communities and running the program. As an SPA intern, you will be responsible for student recruitment for the weekend policy hackathon and assisting the director in program operations.
The SPA internship offers an unparalleled way to build leadership, marketing and outreach and communications skills for the interns. It is an opportunity to further your love for government and politics by bringing hands-on political education to your community. Interested students should fill out the interest form here and we will reach out to them with details on the SPA internship program and next steps.
Are you interested in letting other high school students know about SPA? Did you enjoy your time at the Summer Politics Academy? Do you want to share SPA with other students who would be interested in attending SPA next summer? If so, then become an SPA Ambassador! Our Ambassador program is an incredible way to stay connected to SPA and spread the word about our program. To become an ambassador, we have an outline of several tasks, from hosting an info session to writing a blog entry about your SPA experience, that you will be asked to complete. After completion, you will be featured on the SPA website as an Ambassador of our program. You can learn more about our Ambassadors program here.
