Work with Us
Sargent Shriver said that you have to consider whether or not you will dedicate your time, energy and talent to serving the richest people on earth or whether or not you will dedicate yourself to serving the poor. If you are an enthusiastic idealist who wishes to work towards creating a more just society, the Sargent Shriver National Center on Poverty Law invites you to join our efforts. We are a high-energy committed team of advocates and support staff, and we work hard to deliver change that will advance social and economic justice and improve the lives of millions of people living in poverty. Our people are our greatest asset--we seek to hire individuals from diverse backgrounds who are professional, collaborative, and creative thinkers with a passion for our mission. In exchange, we offer generous benefits, a flexible working environment, and opportunities to work on interesting and unique projects that help bring about important change.
In addition to occasional openings for key organizational leaders, staff attorneys, and support staff, we regularly offer fellowship, internship, and volunteer opportunities that offer a range of ways for you to help advance the Shriver Center's mission. Each year the Shriver Center sponsors several Americorps*VISTA positions that offer a stipend, health coverage, and additional benefits in exchange for a year of service with our organization. We also regularly engage both volunteer and paid faculty across the country to assist with delivery of our training programs.
