Internship & Mentorship Program Description

Internships allow students and early career graduates to gain valuable, applied experience and make connections in professional fields they consider for career paths.

We currently have three internship opportunities rotating throughout our program areas (Communications, Research, Government Affairs, Outreach, and Partnerships).

Participant selection and placement follow a carefully developed and monitored mentorship project plan based on FairVote’s opportunity and the mentee’s career interest, educational program, and skillset.

Each mentee is matched to an internal FairVote mentor, whose primary role is to supervise and coach.

Mentors are selected based on subject-matter-expertise, interest, time available, and patience. The mentorship may also be part of an educational program where students can earn academic credits from their college.
