Mass Alliance Internship

Posted August 25, 2014 Employer: Mass Alliance
Approximate Deadline: September 31, 2014

Mass Alliance is looking for highly motivated interns who are eager to take an active role in Massachusetts politics. Interns will become familiar with the structure of local politics and learn what it takes to be successful in working for reform. Additionally, interns will learn about many progressive public policy areas through contact with the member organizations of the Mass Alliance and become familiar with the various actors behind campaigns and issues.

The Internship program will include the opportunity to help organize progressive training events Mass Alliance hosts; learn how campaigns work directly; drafting letters and web content; and various office duties.

Mass Alliance is a coalition of 24 organizations working to advance progressive politics in Massachusetts. Organizations represent a variety of interests such as: worker’s rights, environmental protection, reproductive freedom, and civil rights. Along with education and advocacy, Mass Alliance frequently endorses candidates for state legislature who are committed to common interests and helps enhance the effectiveness of their campaigns.

Internships are available for a variety of schedules. A commitment to progressive politics is the only firm requirement. Campaign or other organizing experience appreciated, but not required.

Some of our most successful interns have been Northeastern’s PolSci students, we look forward to you continuing that trend.
