GreenWave of PA regularly offers student internships. Selected interns will not receive monetary compensation but will gain experience and possibly earn credit.
We are seeking highly motivated volunteers across the state who will work closely with their regional coordinators or with a specific electoral campaign. (See map on right for your region.)
Your work will be varied. It may include founding a formal Young Greens chapter on your college campus, organizing for your county local, and/or working on an electoral campaign.
Academic credit is not guaranteed, but we will work with your institution to provide it if possible.
Internships have a minimum time-commitment of 3 hours a week for 15 weeks or the equivalent. For-credit internships may require more hours.
Positions will be filled on a rolling basis per region.
