Call for Campaign Students!
At In This Together, we believe that everyone is a problem-solver and we all have a role to play in putting solutions over polarization. We call them ‘#SolutionVoters’. In This Together is bringing Americans together from all across the political spectrum to start taking action on issues that impact all of us – like climate change.
We are seeking college and high school students interested in policy, marketing, and communications to join our campaign school and internship program to inspire and lead others to take action against the extreme echo chambers of our current American political system. Interns & Students with In This Together will take action directly on their campus and in their surrounding communities building support for the In This Together and partner pledge drives as well as participating in our campaign school, where we teach students how to build and manage their own grassroots campaigns in the future. It is our goal to ensure that our students have the skills and are prepared to take on full time campaign, organizing, and marketing roles following our program.
Campaign students and interns can expect to work about 10 hours per week on campus and remotely online. We work with college internships for credit programs and ensure all requirements are met for students to receive credit for our program. All students will learn how to use voter databases, set up and run virtual phone and text banks, manage volunteers, understand social media engagement, and communicate with solution voters at large.
Examples of role choices and lessons for students:
- Organizational Leadership and Management
- Research, Legislative Tracking, and Policy Writing
- Non-Profit and Campaign Fundraising

All student communication is conducted through Slack and Zoom video conference tools, so that we are able to coordinate daily and weekly assignments with the whole team and work on a remote basis.
In addition to campaign roles and assignments, we offer weekly lessons on campaign management and theory via Zoom. We will also feature webinars and presentations from amazing guest speakers and our partner organizations including:
