Capitol Pathways Is Back for its 4th Year!
With the long-term goal of making our government truly representative of our communities, this paid internship program opens access to the Minnesota State Capitol to the next generation of leaders of color. Through this program, interns will build relationships with established policy leaders, gain exposure to various kinds of careers in government, get real-world experience in career fields they would like to learn more about and build a strong professional resume in the process. This is a spring internship that runs concurrently with Minnesota’s legislative session.
