Our internship is mirrored after the fellowship program of President Obama's winning re-election run in 2012.

Every intern will get a personal letter of recommendation at the end of the program and volunteer hours if needed. Our internship program creates wonderful teaming opportunities for these students and skills that will stay lifelong. Once the lock-down is lifted, interns can work out of the campaign office closest to their home and team up with friends from school
