Interns at America Votes in Washington, DC get an inside look at how our coalition operates year-round and connect with some of the most influential issue organizations in the country. Our interns have the opportunity to work with both our national and state teams while learning new skills and getting a taste of different areas of work, including field, communications and other projects. We also offer more than the typical “9-to-6” experience with occasional opportunities outside the office, including trainings, events with our partners and virtual networking with staff.

America Votes is always looking to recruit smart, motivated individuals who can adapt quickly in a fast-paced organization. We are currently accepting applications for Summer 2024 interns and ask that interns be able to work at least 15 hours per week. Interns are compensated with $17 per hour, and we are happy to work with you in securing college credit through your academic institution.

This posting will remain open until the position is filled and applications may be reviewed on a rolling basis.
