Communications Internship

Join an organization at the forefront of health advocacy across the nation

Community Catalyst is a national non-profit advocacy organization working to build consumer and community leadership to transform the American health system. Our first priority is quality, affordable health care for all and to ensure that all individuals and communities sustain the power to influence local, state and national decisions that affect their health. Since 1998, we have provided leadership and support to consumer organizations, policymakers and foundations working to ensure the health care system serves everyone – especially historically marginalized communities.

As an organization, we believe an inclusive and open environment fosters creativity, contributes to the quality of our work, and provides growth opportunities for our employees.

Community Catalyst strengthens organized consumer voices in communities, at statehouses and on Capitol Hill when advocates fight for improvements in health care programs. Additional information is available at www.communitycatalyst.org.
