Want to break into politics?
Apply for the 2018 Vermont Democratic Party Summer Internship Program!
Do you have a passion for politics? Do you want to make positive change in your community?
Do you want to learn what it takes to organize and execute grassroots campaigns?
Then you belong at the VDP.
The Vermont Democratic Party encourages all interested candidates to apply to our 2018 Summer Internship Program! While the position will entail a number of specific responsibilities, the underlying goal of the internship will be to work with VDP staff and volunteers to contact voters and encourage them to support our Democratic candidates for statewide and local office.
Though interns will gain experience in the areas of field work, grassroots organizing, and direct voter contact, there will also be supplemental opportunities to learn about campaign specialties such as communications, data, finance, messaging, operations, etc.
Additional Program Details:
• ~15-20 hours per week
• Internship credit for college/university students
• Possibility of working remotely when appropriate
• Expected participation from mid-June to late August 2018
• New friends, experiences, and an invaluable introduction to politics in Vermont!
All interested candidates should submit their resume and one-page cover letter to VDP Coordinated Campaign Director Rob Hipskind via e-mail at firstname.lastname@example.org.
