The Democratic National Committee is looking for enthusiastic, politically minded future leaders for our Spring 2018 internship programs.

Interning at the DNC is a unique opportunity for hardworking, passionate future leaders to gain real life, hands-on experience in Democratic politics, strengthen their understanding of the political process and prepare for future political opportunities. It's also a great way to form lasting connections and memories.

In addition to typical intern duties you will have the chance to volunteer in community outreach projects and grassroots organizing, assist at DNC functions, take tours across Washington, D.C., and attend weekly lunches hosted by DNC staff. Each department offers you a unique learning experience — learn more about each department here.
