ENGAGE MIAMI HIRING COLLEGE ORGANIZING INTERNS
Engage Miami is seeking college interns for the summer and fall who are interested in learning how to organize and lead within voter registration and mobilization. Interns specifically will be responsible for canvassing to register and mobilize young voters, build community partnerships, and assist with event planning and logistics. You won't be tied to a desk, you'll meet lots of people, and you'll make change happen at the grassroots level. Applicants should be self-motivated and accountable while bringing a sense of humor and fun to their work.
Interns will work approximately 5-10 hours/week during the summer and 10 hours/week in the fall. Compensation is $10 an hour. There will also be additional opportunities for growth through optional attendance at Engage Miami community events and mentorship by Engage Miami staff and board members. Preference will be given to Miami-Dade College (MDC) and Florida International University (FIU) students.
Engage Miami is 501(c)(4) organization. Our mission is to build a more just, democratic, and sustainable Miami by developing a culture of civic participation for young people that is BOLD, CREATIVE, IMPACTFUL, and LOCAL.

We are an affiliate of the Alliance For Youth Action, a national network of local groups helping America’s biggest and most diverse generation take our seat at democracy’s decision-making table.
We welcome applications from all, and strongly encourage women, people of color, people with disabilities, immigrants, and members of the LGBTQ community to apply.
