We like to provide professional community engagement opportunities to those early in their organizing and advocacy careers so they have a solid understanding of and foundation in the advocacy world. We seek to provide students with the opportunity to develop a deeper understanding of organizing, grassroots leadership development, and campaign planning and execution.

Interns will gain valuable experience by:

  • Learning more about organizing, particularly distributed and field organizing.
  • Assisting in field and advocacy planning.
  • Preparing information and research materials.
  • Completing field research and working with members of the team to develop campaign strategies.

This internship would be a good fit for someone:

  • Interested in civil liberties and social justice work.
  • Interested in community organizing and systems change.
  • With the ability to work independently and to complete projects.
  • Highly motivated and organized.
