Be a voice for reproductive freedom on your campus and in your community.

Planned Parenthood Generation Action Internship is a network of young organizers and activists across Connecticut and Rhode Island who take action on their college campuses and in their communities to mobilize advocates for reproductive freedom.

Interns work from September to May to raise public awareness about reproductive health, rights, and justice, educate young people about sexual health, and create lasting change.

"Talking to a large group of people about the frank and complicated subjects of reproductive justice and health is not what scares me. What scares me is the idea of nobody talking about the subjects at all."

- Megan Kleczka, Generation Action Intern
