The office is dynamic and fast-paced! A successful intern is one who enjoys “learning by doing” – we strongly encourage you to visit our website for an idea of the issue areas we work on. You could, for example, simultaneously be working on projects related to reducing mass
incarceration, women’s health and reproductive rights and assisting inmates register to vote. During the legislative session you could be attending hearings and track movement on specific bills. We would certainly be open to hearing about any specific projects that you would like to create.
A minimum of 10 hours per week to be scheduled during the weekday and anytime between the hours of 9:30 a.m. -5 p.m.
Although the Director of Campaigns, Niki Venugopal, will act as your primary supervisor, the position is structured such that you may be working on several different projects with different staff providing guidance and oversight of your work.
