Managed by the federal government, the Corporation for National and Community Service (CNS) fosters civic responsibility through its efforts to engage Americans in addressing national issues, such as education, public safety and the environment. The national CNS office is in D.C., but most states have a branch as well. CNS administers AmeriCorps, Learn and Serve America, and the National Senior Service Corps.
Interns in the national office conduct research and coordinate special events. They may work in AmeriCorps recruitment, AmeriCorps, the chief financial office, chief operating office, Learn and Serve America, planning and program integration, Congressional relations, public affairs, public liaison, Senior Corps, general counsel and the chief executive office. State offices also offer internships, but each program is different.
