Please take a second to read about PolitiCorps to put yourself on the path of doing meaningful work and having the summer of your life.
PolitiCorps is the premier leadership development experience for young people interested in work for the public interest. Politicorps combines hands-on service with powerful connections to a local and national network of progressive leaders. It is an opportunity to make an impact in the short term and develop a strong network for the long term. PolitiCorps fellows come from all over the country, from all walks of life, and have diverse areas of interest but each of the fellows are challenged to give their absolute best to inspire the next wave of innovation for social progressive change.
The fellowship consists of daily hands on learning from people engaged at all levels of the political process in Oregon (e.g. policy makers, activists, elected officials, badass organization leaders, and more!) in the mornings followed by direct engagement with issues taken up by the fellows in the afternoons and often into the night. In past years the fellows have worked on issues like marriage equality, access to higher education, and voter registration, to name a few. Fellows will be given a stipend and a place to live.
Looking forward to your applications and all the best,
