The Environmental Voter Project is looking for highly-motivated individuals to join our Internship Program. Interns will work with the entire EVP staff to learn about organizing, nonprofit communications, and data analytics. Interns will be expected to devote time to voter outreach, volunteer management, electoral research, drafting memos, and senior staff support. 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 10 hours per week.
While the Environmental Voter Project is based out of Boston, MA, this internship is a fully virtual experience and applicants from across the country are encouraged to apply.
Applications will be accepted on a rolling basis.
