Website

Since 1999, the Liberty Square Group has been providing strategic, integrated communications, public and government affairs counsel to a wide range of businesses, associations, political candidates and non-profit organizations.

LSG has developed a new campaign arm, the Blue Lab. The purpose of the Blue Lab is to be a Democratic campaign incubator, a one-stop shop for political candidates seeking campaign consulting. The Blue Lab also recruits qualified, viable candidates for office, and provides them the mentoring and skills training they need to run and to win. With a busy campaign year in Massachusetts underway, the Blue Lab is already working with candidates for Congress, Lieutenant Governor, State Senate, and District Attorney.

We are seeking some politically-minded independent thinkers to become part of our elite team of interns. Interns will collaborate directly with our campaign experts conducting research, gaining first-hand knowledge of the campaign process. The Blue Lab provides a variety of services, as such we are looking to bring on a diverse group of interns with experience or interest in anything from communications to website design, political science to public relations, journalism to video production, or just looking to the get involved in the political process.

Blue Lab internships are unpaid, however they can be taken for credit under the supervision of our academic advisor who will insure all academic requirements are fulfilled. Interns for the summer are expected to commit to 8 hours a week.We would also like to extend an invitation to all internship coordinators and supervisors to visit our offices and learn more about LSG and the Blue Lab and meet the rest of our team. Applications for the summer will be accepted until April 15. Interested candidates should send a resume and application to me, Kaileigh Higgins, at higgins@libertysquaregroup.com.

We look forward to meeting and working with some talented students this summer.
