Many legislators and senior policy staff began their careers as interns. Internships are invaluable to gain an understanding of our democratic process, as well as an excellent opportunity to create important networks while serving the community.
We have numerous opportunities including Legislative Aides, Social Media Coordinators, recruiters, graphics designers, and Data Analysts.
Internships are available to all part-time or full-time students (including high school students and college/university students). Interns will gain valuable education and work experience through working with our office. All internship work is voluntary and students will not receive any monetary compensation. Depending on their programs, students may also receive different types of school credit for participating as interns.
I encourage you to apply!
