Looking for a meaningful way to serve the Latino community? The League of United Latin American Citizens, the nation's oldest and largest civil rights organization, seeks several talented and passionate interns to work for the LULAC national headquarters in Washington D.C.

Applicants are required to have excellent academic records and strong writing and communication skills. Thorough knowledge of the Hispanic community and current issues is a plus.
