The Children's Defense Fund is an organization deeply committed to our Leave No Child Behind mission and to ensure that every child has a Healthy Start, a Head Start, a Fair Start, a Safe Start and a Moral Start in life and successful passage into adulthood with caring families and communities. For 40 years, CDF has combined advocacy, public education, policy development, leadership training and other efforts to protect children and encourage preventive investment in children before they get sick, drop out of school, suffer family breakdown, or get into trouble.
The Office of the President is staffed by a team of individuals responsible for coordinating special initiatives and projects and providing administrative and program support to CDF’s founder and President Marian Wright Edelman. Interns assigned to this office work directly under the supervision of the Special Assistant to the President to carry out a variety of tasks needed.
