Political Internship

Posted 680 days ago
Internship Responsibilities:
?In this internship, you will directly assist candidates running for public office that the Sierra Club has endorsed. The Sierra Club has an extremely rigorous endorsement process and focuses on the most competitive races with the best environmentally-minded candidates. In this internship, we will train you on the basic skills of campaign organizing, educate you about environmental issues that play in politics, and then deploy you to be part of a candidate’s campaign for two-three months. Potential responsibilities include: helping organize fundraisers for a candidate, coordinating voter contact, organizing phone banks, recruiting Sierra Club members to volunteer for a candidate, helping coordinate press conferences and press releases for a candidate, helping with a candidate’s earned media strategy as well as social media, assisting with policy or campaign research, performing data entry and office work as needed.

?Internship positions are available for summer (June-August) and fall (September-November) semesters, and are able to be shortened or extended as needed. This internship can come with a small stipend to offset the cost of food and gas and can also earn you class credit (you will need to work this out with your academic advisor). The internship is coordinated through our Lansing office and there will be an internship training in Lansing for summer interns in June, however, you will be deployed to work for a campaign that will likely not be in Lansing. Internships can be arranged for between 10 to 40 hours per week, with flexible scheduling.
