Progressing Toward an Internship That Matters


If you have progressive values and are looking for a fall internship that will make a difference, have we got a deal for you!
The Tenth Congressional District Democrats (Tenth Dems) is accepting applications for fall internships. Several of our interns have gone on to internships in Washington, to college majors in political science or law, or paid political and nonprofit positions locally and in Washington.
Interns may do research, walk door-to-door with candidates, work in campaign offices, staff events and issue forums, and get to meet many political figures. In the past, they've helped at Tenth Dems events featuring former Presidential nominee George McGovern, as well as Presidential hopefuls Senators Evan Bayh of Indiana, Russ Feingold of Wisconsin, Howard Dean of Vermont, and Illinois' Barack Obama.

Tenth Dems is a grassroots political organization that helps elect Democrats to all levels of political office throughout the 10th Congressional District. The organization has had thousands of volunteers helping Democratic candidates.
The 10th Congressional District contains portions of both Cook and Lake Counties stretching from Wilmette on the south through Waukegan and from Lake Michigan west through parts of Arlington Heights and Palatine.

Applicants should be high school juniors or seniors, college students, or graduate or law students with a desire to help the Democratic Party. Computer skills are desired. Fall interns are expected to work a minimum of 8 hours a week. We are looking especially for interns with web administration, social media, data and/or organizing skills.

Course credit is available with cooperating high schools and colleges. Acceptance into the Internship Program is selective and contingent upon an interview. Applicants are asked to submit a brief paragraph explaining why they want this internship, and a resume of their educational background and activities. Neither need be formal.
For more information on the Intern Program, or to apply, contact Hon. Lauren Beth Gash, Chair, or Andy Bookman, Internship Coordinator, at or call 847-266-VOTE (8683).
