Get to know the names and faces of Georgia’s leading Democrats and help us support Democrats around the state by interning with the Democratic Party of Georgia. The DPG is currently seeking responsible and capable individuals who are interested in learning first-hand about politics.
Internships with the DPG frequently catapult qualified individuals into jobs in politics and the non-profit sector and are a great way to help Democrats win in future elections! DPG internships require a time commitment of at least 15 hours per week.
The internship program will run the length of an academic period (fall, spring or summer). Internships are unpaid but academic credit can be awarded. Interns will be working at our State Party headquarters in Atlanta, GA.

Responsibilities associated with an internship may include information gathering work at the capitol, media surveillance, various writing projects (press releases, emails, blog posts), video editing, graphic design, event planning, research, voter outreach, list management, and various special projects as needed by the Party and DPG staff.

2.Be interested in the political process as well as be knowledgeable about Democratic Party issues;
3.Consider themselves a Democrat;
4.Be available to work at least 15 hours each week Monday through Friday.
