The Third Way Adam Solomon Intern Program introduces highly motivated graduate students, with an interest in policy analysis and development, to the process of advancing a 21st century progressive agenda. Interns will gain hands-on experience working closely with Third Way’s senior management team, which has extensive political, communications, and policy experience, forged at every level of government and advocacy: the White House, federal agencies, the House and Senate, presidential campaigns, and national non-profit advocacy organizations.

Third Way is a think tank that answers America’s challenges with modern ideas aimed at the center. We advocate for private-sector economic growth, a tough and smart centrist security strategy, a clean energy revolution, and progress on divisive social issues, all through a moderate-led U.S. politics.

The Third Way Internship Program was named in 2009 in memory of our former Vice Chairman, Adam Solomon, who believed that progressives must re-think our ideas for a new era. He believed deeply in public service and was instrumental in creating Third Way.


Third Way’s Outreach Department focuses on developing strategic relationships with external partners.

Examples of impact include:

Hosting monthly policy lunches with Members of Congress and their Senior staff;
Developing working groups with Senior Congressional staff on key legislative issues such as health care, clean energy, and innovation;
Convening numerous networking and policy events;
Executing organizational fundraising strategy.

Interns are an integral part of the team, and they work on a variety of tasks. In the past, Outreach Department interns have:

Conducted research on timely legislative issues and covered relevant Committee hearings;
Attended briefings with Members of Congress and senior congressional staff;
Developed new systems for database management;
Assisted in development and execution of events.



Candidates must be college students with an interest and knowledge of national politics. Outstanding research, writing, and analytic skills, as well as excellent attention to detail, are imperative.
