The training includes meetings and sessions around the city and provides an excellent opportunity for students to familiarize themselves with Washington, DC. The location is especially helpful for those students whose internships are located in the D.C. area. Students participate in workshops on topics including: public speaking, networking, resource mobilization, organizational power structures, media relations, project management and goal setting. Students also have the opportunity to meet with a wide variety of people who work in a variety of policy-related positions in the nation’s capital: the media, interest groups, political parties, think tanks, and lobbying firms. Students also interact with Members of Congress, congressional staff members, and executive branch officials. These panels of Dartmouth alumni and other civic professionals provide the students with valuable contacts, insights, and perspectives on life in the civic sector. Now in its fourth year, the Civic Skills Training program provides students with an intellectual framework for analyzing the political and non-profit worlds and practical skills for their upcoming internships. The initial funding for the Civic Skills Training program was provided by the Surdna Foundation. In addition to Civic Skills Training, the Rockefeller Center also provides internship support for students, including facilitation in the internship search process and funding for off-term, full-time, public policy internships. The Rockefeller Center maintains archives of internships undertaken by Dartmouth students in the past as well as internships identified by staff and friends as likely opportunities. This database is easily searchable so that one may look for opportunities based on specific policy areas such as health, law, international affairs, economics, and numerous other categories. 8
