INTERN FOR THE MAYOR OF NYC CAMPAIGN
Come and intern with the Quinn for New York campaign. The campaign is looking for bright, energetic individuals who want to learn the nuts and bolts of how a campaign works, and help elect the next Mayor of New York City.
Hours are completely flexible with a small requirement, and the Quinn Campaign team is a lot of fun. No experience necessary. You will walk out the door at the end of the internship knowing how to run a local field program, as well as having met some really great friends.
Additionally, if you are an applicant who is looking to take your involvement with the campaign to the next level, the campaign is also offering a fellowship program. Fellows will be required to have a greater time commitment than interns and will participate in our Field Organizer Training Program, where you will not only learn the basics of campaign field work, but will also gain in-depth knowledge of grassroots organizing so you are ready to work on, and eventually run, campaigns of your own in the future.
The Quinn for New York intern and fellowship programs are designed to be an enriching educational experience, where participants will engage in daily field activities, learn from and have access to seasoned campaign staff, and hear from a variety of political guest speakers.
