Campus Internships

Meet new people, get involved in your community, learn important skill, and make a difference on the issues that matter. Interns take on a leadership role within a campaign, and in many cases are able to receive course credit for their work. Our campus organizers will be hosting intern and volunteer overviews from January 18st through February 1st at various locations across our three campuses.
