Summer Interns!

NSLA has teamed up with the NBA Foundation to recruit college students of color for a paid public policy internship in Washington DC this summer. Students worked at Capitol Hill, public policy organizations, and community-based organizations.


We offer in-depth guides and resources, and can provide your next staff training, conduct a community landscape assessment or an evaluation of your program’s quality.
