What You'll Learn:

Interns will gain hands-on experience working on the most watched congressional race in the nation. We want interns to get a broad understanding of the various functions of a campaign, from fundraising and communications, to volunteer recruitment and voter persuasion. Interns will have the opportunity to meet and network with elected officials and local business and community leaders, learn about the issues most important to residents of the 49th, and develop skills that will assist them in their future careers.
