Democratic National Convention Committee Announces Launch of Paid Summer Internship Program
MILWAUKEE—The Democratic National Convention Committee (DNCC) today announced the launch of its paid summer internship program, which is designed to give local young people the opportunity to help make the 2020 Democratic National Convention in Milwaukee a success.
The DNCC Internship Program will provide young people from Wisconsin a chance to participate in the political process, to see how large-scale events are created, and to learn new skills that will help them grow both personally and professionally. Interns will work side-by-side with DNCC staff and have the opportunity to see the unique process that goes into building a national political convention.
“Conventions are historic events and all those working to ensure the 2020 Democratic National Convention is a success will have a front row seat to history,” said Democratic National Convention Committee CEO Joe Solmonese. “I look forward to welcoming the energy and vision of our party’s next generation of leaders to our dynamic and growing team.”
Those selected will begin participation on May 18 and conclude their internships on July 20. Interns will be paid a $15 hourly wage and those enrolled in accredited schools may request course credit.
All interested applicants should visit www.demconvention.com/internship and click the Intern Application link in order to submit their application. Candidates must be 18 years of age or older, legally eligible to work in the United States, and complete an application by no later than March 27, 2020.
