A Summer Internship that Matters

If you care about making the world a better place and are looking for a summer internship that will make a difference, have we got a deal for you! The Tenth Congressional District Democrats (Tenth Dems) is in the final days of accepting applications for our Summer 2022 Internship Program, so be sure to act soon! You can reply directly to this email message or send to info@tenthdems.org with “Internship” in the Subject line. Include your resume and a brief statement explaining your interest in the internship. Neither need be formal.The internship is a substantive program designed for high school, college, and graduate students seeking an opportunity to become deeply engaged in the political process.

Tenth Dems is a grassroots political organization that helps mobilize voters and activists in and around the 10th Congressional District, which includes communities in Lake, Cook, and McHenry Counties, north of Chicago. This area has elected more and more Democrats over the past several cycles, and we will be working especially hard this summer and fall to protect those gains (and elect even more Democrats).

With Democrats predicted to struggle in the upcoming midterm election, now is an exciting time to complete a political internship. Our interns have staffed issue forums and events for elected officials and candidates up and down the ballot, worked with campaigns, and conducted research. Tenth Dems interns were very active during the 2020 election cycle, supporting candidates for state legislature, county board, and countywide offices, and helping to turn out the vote for Democrats running for the US House of Representatives and the White House. We expect the same level of participation in the 2022 primaries and midterm elections, which include all statewide races.

Interns may choose to complete general internships or to specialize in areas such as media, technology, volunteer management, or political outreach.

To apply or request more information, email us at info@tenthdems.org. You can also follow us on Facebook at facebook.com/TenthDems or Twitter at Twitter.com/TenthDems.
