Fall 2020 Intern

Fall 2020 Intern

Boston, MA

Overview

The Environmental Voter Project is looking for highly-motivated undergraduates to join our selective Fall Internship Program. Interns will work closely with the Field Director, Organizing Director, and the Executive Director to learn about subjects such as field campaigning, nonprofit communications and data analytics. Interns will be expected to devote time to field outreach, senior staff support, event planning, research, and volunteer management. In addition to gaining valuable nonprofit advocacy skills, interns will become talented organizers and political operatives by learning the nuts and bolts of nonprofit work and electoral campaigning from an exciting and innovative organization. We are seeking responsible, motivated candidates who can commit to 10+ hours per week for this program. This is an unpaid internship.

While the Environmental Voter Project is based out of Boston, MA, this internship is being offered as a fully virtual experience and applicants from across the country are encouraged to apply. Interns in the Boston metro area may be given the option for a partial in-office experience later in the semester.

Applications will be accepted on a rolling basis – staff will begin to review applicants starting in early July.
