We’re no longer hiring a fiscal intern.
Vote Everywhere is a national, non-partisan, civic engagement movement of student leaders and university partners. The program provides extensive training, resources, as well as a peer network to support its Campus Champions, Team Leaders, and Ambassadors. These key players work together to register voters, bring down voting barriers, and tackle important social justice issues on their college campuses. The Ambassador holds the Vote Everywhere internship for emerging leaders with the potential for multi-year renewal. The Ambassador receives ongoing leadership training and support from the Vote Everywhere Program Manager and the Morgridge Center for Public Service. Ambassadors develop the leadership skills, confidence, and strategic problem solving necessary to affect change on campus and beyond. Because the Andrew Goodman Foundation collaborates with colleges and universities to bring Vote Everywhere to campuses, the Ambassador will report directly to both the Vote Everywhere Program Manager and the Campus Champion, a representative of the campus staff/faculty.
