Summer 2021 Intern

Summer, 2021

(Virtual)

Overview.

The Environmental Voter Project (EVP) is looking for highly-motivated undergraduates to join our selective Summer Internship Program. Interns will work closely with the entire EVP staff 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, voting and elections research, data management and entry, and volunteer management. In addition to gaining valuable nonprofit advocacy skills, interns will participate in weekly seminars, join regular trainings, and 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.
