Noah Ball-Burack, John Hazen White Summer 2022 Intern

Noah Ball-Burack is concentrating in International and Public Affairs on the Policy and Governance track, and Economics. He is passionate about policy change aimed at improving the economic and social well-being of Americans, especially those in the most vulnerable circumstances. He spent the last two summers focusing on evidence-based workforce development policies at the state and federal levels, and then interned in the Office of Rhode Island Governor Dan McKee in the spring of 2022. Noah has also conducted research with Brown University's Climate and Development Lab and supported several Democratic Senate candidates as a field organizer ahead of the 2020 general election and 2021 Georgia Senate runoffs.

This summer, Noah is thrilled to be interning in person at the Administration for Children and Families (ACF) at U.S. Health and Human Services. There, he serves in the Office of the Assistant Secretary and reports directly to ACF's chief of staff. He has already been tasked with diverse projects, from preparing talking points for the Assistant Secretary to exploring how ACF can strategically visualize data about homelessness to coordinating program implementation across offices. Noah is deeply grateful to the Taubman Center for making possible such a formative summer experience.
