Description

We are looking for hardworking, responsible interns who want to learn more about the social change movement, are willing to take on new challenges, and most importantly, care about making a difference.

Change Corps is a one-year training program in grassroots organizing for graduates. When Change Corps organizers complete their training, they’re ready for a social change job with real responsibility, and we help place them into leading organizations and campaigns. Together, we’re building a movement with a pipeline of emerging new organizers and leaders to push and prod our country forward. We need a strong team of interns to help us launch this new nonprofit organization.

Internship Program:
Interns work closely with Change Corps staff to develop and implement recruitment plans to get in touch with over 1 million students across America, interns will help us as we get our message out through social media, coordinate program logistics across the country, and mobilize candidates to get involved. Experienced Change Corps staff will provide training and mentorship to best prepare interns for careers in political activism, public policy, journalism, and non-profit management. Students completing the internship program may be offered a full-time paid position with Change Corps.


Why Now?

A new, more open-minded generation is calling for a more equal and democratic America; a greener America; and an America that understands that while each of us wants to be free to follow our own path, we're all in this together.

Many Americans share our values and views, and yet too often, change is stalled on the issues we care about most. To meet this challenge, we need organizers and interns with the tenacity and the training required to move our country forward. That's where Change Corps comes in.

Why Intern?

If we want positive change in America, we have to organize the kind of public support and grassroots action that persuade decision-makers to stop obstructing change and instead embrace it.

What will you work on?

Social Change is, by definition, dynamic. We'll partner with campaigns and organizations focused on issues that you're passionate about, such as women's rights, marriage equality, jobs and the economy, money in politics, voting rights, immigration reform and global warming.

Essential Job Functions:
-Research: Use the internet, social media, and partner outreach to build a database of institutions to recruit candidates from
-Outreach: Get in touch with institutions to organize logistics, post job descriptions, and coordinate information sessions and visibility days
-Event Planning: Organize logistics for Change Corps national interview days

Responsibilities

Why apply?

Because the movement for social change needs people like you: Bright, talented, passionate people who are willing to stand up and work hard for positive social change.

We know that finding a path to follow if you want to start a career and make a mark on the issues you’re passionate about can be challenging.
