Intern WITH JENN

The Jenn McClellan for Governor campaign is looking for smart, motivated, and energetic interns and organizing fellows to join our team!

We strive to provide our interns and fellows with an educational experience and networking opportunities that will enhance their future professional or public service careers. We are seeking to identify tomorrow’s leaders today, and give them a true behind-the-scenes look at what really goes on in political campaigns! 

VA Campus Organizing Fellowship

The campus organizer will build and manage a strong cross-campus fellowship program, bringing in college and high school students to engage their peers on-campus and voters off-campus. The fellowship program will be one critical piece of our movement to put power in the hands of the people where it belongs.

Responsibilities Include

  • Recruiting, managing, and training college and high school fellows to participate in executing the campaign’s direct voter contact plan.
  • Develop a plan to register new voters on campus, build a student volunteer base, execute events on campus, and educate students about the district and the race.
  • Utilize creative digital means in partnership with the mobilization director to reach students during a time when in-person events are rarer and more challenging.
  • Work closely with the team of organizers to have fellows assist with the broader field efforts.
