Clinton Health Matters Initiative
Launched in November 2012, Clinton Health Matters Initiative (CHMI) aims to improve the health and well-being of all United States citizens. CHMI's ultimate measures of success will be a reduction in the prevalence of preventable disease, a reduction in health care costs associated with preventable disease, and an increase in well-being.Interns will assist in day-to-day operations, support project implementation, and conduct research in a range of topics related to public health. Interns will gain hands-on experience in research, general project management, social media, and grassroots/community activation. Strong research, writing skills, and computer skills, as well as an entrepreneurial spirit are desirable. A background in public health, economics, and/or social policy is preferred.
Communications interns are critical members of the press and speechwriting teams, assisting with all communications, press, and speechwriting activities. Interns will contribute to the preparation of communications materials (print, video and television) for various audiences (press, participants, and the general public), as well gain exposure to media monitoring and strategy. Candidates should possess the ability to write for media, conduct in-depth research, and perform well under tight deadlines.
The Clinton Foundation relies on donations. Donor relations and donation processing as well as membership services are handled by our finance office in Little Rock. In addition, the accounting operations as well as other finance and control operations are administered out of this office. Interns will be engaged for the most part in special analysis type projects that will require a facility with database type software and Excel. These projects tend to be detailed but require the ability to keep an eye on the big picture. Intern candidates who have a background in business studies, including managerial accounting and finance, as well as excellent computer skills should consider this area.
The Clinton Museum Store is not only a direct reflection of the Clinton Presidential Library and the William J. Clinton Foundation; we interact with thousands of national and international visitors every week. The store is a showcase for many Arkansas-made products as well as high level contemporary crafts, artwork, and jewelry from all over the world and carries historical, educational, and inspirational items that cover multiple aspects of President Clinton and his Foundation's work. We look for interns who are creative and innovative in their approach to retail management, marketing, and product development. Job duties include but are not limited to merchandising the store, assisting in new product development, maintaining and updating inventory, creating promotional and marketing plans, negotiating with vendors, and managing special projects.

Interns will also assist in processing small deed of gift collections, as well as work on a major audiovisual preservation project.Interns will handle routine office matters such as box retrieval, photocopying, faxing, and mailing.
Operations interns will help to maintain day-to-day operations and overall sustainability of the Little Rock offices of the Clinton Foundation. Tasks include administrative support, basic IT support, assisting the Operations staff, and various other projects. Interns will gain a greater understanding of managing the internal operations of a non-governmental organization.
The Clinton Foundation offers premium event space within the Clinton Library to the community for rental.

In addition, this office is responsible for the many public programs and events that are held at the Center each year. Interns in this area will need to be flexible, energetic, and resourceful with an ability to multi-task. Their primary responsibilities will be to assist the events staff with client communication and management, database management, responding to requests for information, and event planning. This is a fast paced office and the interns will need to be able to respond effectively and quickly to all tasks.
University of Arkansas Clinton School of Public Service (UACS)
Interns at UACS will have the opportunity to participate in a variety of activities, including working on special events (seminars, workshops, conferences, public forums); carrying out research on economic, social, and political development issues; facilitating visits to the School of distinguished scholars from around the world; and coordinating plans and activities between the academic programs of the University and the service/training programs of the Clinton Foundation.
