VA21 Summer Internship Program
Looking for experience in government and politics? Care about issues that affect young people? Do you care about issues like student debt, financial aid, and jobs for young people?
Virginia21 offers college students seeking a dynamic and energized work environment the opportunity to immerse themselves in work that has an impact on students across the Commonwealth. Our office will help you develop the necessary skills for a successful career in non-profit advocacy and the political world. As an intern, we match your career goals and your degree expertise with specific fields such as development or media management to give you a complete experience. Scheduling is flexible throughout the summer but students must be willing to devote two days a week minimum. As always, we allow this internship to be used for credit hours.
To apply, please submit a resume by email to firstname.lastname@example.org. We also ask that you submit a short statement of purpose describing why an internship with Virginia21 would be a good fit for you. Highlight your strengths and tell us about your study and career goals. If selected, you will be contacted for an interview. Spaces are limited and we ask that you apply by no later than May 31.
No background in politics or student government required. Our ideal candidate would be an engaging individual with a diverse set of opinions and experiences. If you have questions, email us at email@example.com.
