Anthony Shadid Internship Program

Since 1981, over 500 students have participated in the Anthony Shadid internship program of the ADC Research Institute (ADCRI). Students from all over the country gather at the national office in Washington, D.C. each year to gain first-hand experience and knowledge about ADC issues and campaigns.

The Anthony Shadid internship program offers a variety of positions for leadership development. It educates students on issues of civil rights, the Arab heritage, and current events in the Middle East. It empowers them to educate others. Students gain practical training in community organizing, media relations, research and writing, legal issues, political action, educational outreach, and routine office work alongside our regular professional staff. The first few weeks of the summer program are centered on the annual ADC Convention in June.
