You will learn the basics of how to build a grassroots field program and help elect candidates who will fight to support and protect our fundamental right to vote. From engaging in daily field activities to learning from seasoned campaign staff to hearing from a variety of high-profile political guest speakers; this internship is unlike any other in politics. By learning the basics of campaign and political organizing, we will not only elect candidates who stand up for democracy and voting rights in 2018, but teach everyone involved the skills necessary to organize in their communities and even run campaigns in 2018 and beyond.
Hours are very flexible, and the team here at Let America Vote is a lot of fun! No experience is necessary. You will walk out the door at the end of the internship knowing how to run a local field program, as well as having met some great friends.
Let America Vote is a national organization, and we offer opportunities to students across the entire country. With field offices in 5 states as well as countless volunteer and college chapters in other states, this is a great opportunity to get involved in the fight for voting rights regardless of where you live.
Additionally, the Let America Vote offers a fellowship program if you’re looking to be even more involved. With an expanded time commitment, fellows will also benefit from our Field Organizer Training Program, where they’ll learn about grassroots organizing from a team of experts. This will prepare you to be even more proactive in your role, ensuring you can work effectively on future advocacy, political campaigns, and other modes of valuable civic engagement.
