Intern with Gary For Senate

garyholderBrought to our attention by Professor Krishna Winston, check out this amazing opportunity:

We have great internship and fellowship opportunities available for Wesleyan University students with Gary Holder-Winfield’s campaign for State Senate. Our campaign is looking for bright, energetic individuals who want to learn the nuts and bolts of how a campaign works and help elect the next member of the Connecticut State Senate.

Hours are flexible and participants can work with staff to make a schedule that fits with their academic and athletic/extra-circular commitments. Gary’s campaign team encourages a fun work environment. Our program can be a good fit for individuals seeking their first political or community organizing experience. Students will walk out the door at the end of the internship knowing how to run a local field program, manage a campaign organization, and craft a grassroots message.

Additionally, for students who are looking to take their involvement with the campaign to the next level, the campaign is also offering a fellowship program. Fellows will be required to fulfill a greater time commitment than interns and will participate in our Campaign Organizer Training Program, where they will not only learn the basics of campaign field work, but will also gain in-depth knowledge of Political Organizations so they are ready to work on, and eventually run, campaigns of their own in the future.

Gary Holder-Winfield for State Senate campaign’s Intern and Fellowship Programs are designed to be enriching, educational experiences where participants will engage in daily field activities, learn from and work closely with veteran campaign staff, and hear from a variety of political guest speakers.
