Location:  Washington, DC

The National Pork Producers Council (NPPC) is the global voice for the U.S. pork industry working daily to protect the livelihoods of pork producers by fighting for reasonable legislation and developing revenue and market opportunities. Our mission is to add significant value to pork producers and industry investors by achieving favorable laws and regulations that help them operate successful businesses and compete effectively and profitably in the global marketplace.

NPPC's internship program is a hands-on experience for students seeking to learn more about the pork industry, government relations, international trade and public policy. Interns have the opportunity to work under the direction of the highly respected professionals in one of four different departments: communications, environmental law and policy, international trade, or science and technology. Senior staff members value the opportunity to mentor and teach today's students who will be tomorrow's leaders.

Located one block from the Capitol building, the NPPC Washington Public Policy Center is in the heart of the political action on Capitol Hill. NPPC interns have the ability for professional networking with congressional staff, allied industry trade associations and federal agencies, including the U.S. Department of Agriculture and the Environmental Protection Agency. If you have an interest in promoting American agriculture and want to gain real--world experience in the political arena, this is the opportunity for you!

In addition to an unparalleled experience, their distinguished internship program offers a competitive stipend.
