Communications and Policy Department Internship

The Office of San Francisco District Attorney George Gascón is seeking interns. Selected candidateswill work with our small team of communications and policy professionals in a dynamic, fast-pacedenvironment.

From ensuring San Francisco invests in mental health instead of incarceration, to protectingconsumers and fighting for victims of crime, DA Gascón is considered a national leader in criminaljustice reform. He is working to make San Francisco the safest large city in America, and was thedriving force behind Prop 36, to reform our three strikes law, and Prop 47, to reduce drug possessionfor personal use from a felony to a misdemeanor. The DA also convened the Blue Ribbon Panel onTransparency, Accountability and Fairness in Law Enforcement.

Interested in getting involved with these issues and much, much more? SFDA interns receive a behindthe scenes understanding of the criminal justice system, are exposed to best practices related to mediaand community relations, and will learn how crime and public policy related news stories aregenerated and developed in the media. They also receive ample training in the legislative process, andwill need to attend court proceedings to provide updates on criminal cases being covered by the press.

Important Information: This is an unpaid internship and regrettably no stipends are available.Selected candidates are required to undergo a background check. Internships are offered for the Fall,Spring and Summer semesters. Interviews and hiring are conducted on a rolling basis until positionsare filled. As such we recommend applying as far in advance as possible. Minimum timecommitments are three months in duration, three days per week, with limited exceptions. Due to thevolume of applicants, especially for Summer, we give priority to those able to commit to full-timework schedules. Many interns choose to stay on longer than the three month commitment, whichmay limit the number of positions we are able to offer in a semester.
Applying? Be Sure to Include the Following:

  •     A short (one or two paragraphs) well-written cover letter included in the body of an email withresume attached.
  •     Include your weekly availability, your preferred start date, and the approximate date throughwhich you are available in the email.
  •     Your email should be addressed to max.szabo@sfgov.org, and please ensure it includes “[Fall/Spring/Summer] Internship" in the subject line. IE: “Fall Internship”

Thank you for your interest!
