...interested in receiving the legislative advocacy and community organizing training you need to be an activist on your campus and a lifelong leader for progressive social change?
Whether you want to change the world around you and just aren't sure where to start, or are a seasoned activist in need of training and a like-minded progressive community, PPNC's college student internship program is for you! Responsibilities include:
- Facilitate outreach programs at colleges, community fairs, concerts and other campus events to educate people about choice issues.
- Act as on-campus representative of Planned Parenthood and help coordinate the activities of pro-choice students.
- Attend coalition and committee meetings and legislative strategy sessions, and participate in visits to local legislators.
- Assist in planning, publicizing and coordinating campus programs in collaboration with faculty, campus organizations, residential life staff and other interested groups.
- Work with Public Affairs staff and volunteers on in-center and community outreach.
- Assist with special projects, conduct research and assist with fundraising events.
We prefer that any student interested in a Public Affairs internship be able to commit to at least two semesters. We also work with students interested in gaining experience in our Development and Marketing departments; the time you commit will depend on your availability, and we will work with your college or university to try to arrange for you to receive credit for your work.
