Applications are now open for currently enrolled or recently graduated students to participate in the County Party's Political Organizing Academy this summer or fall. The program is a great way to get hands-on political experience and interaction with Democratic activists and Party leaders.
Organizers support various activities and projects of the Party, including administration, field organizing, research, finance, communications and social media. Their time will be a mix of in-person and remote participation.
These volunteer positions often involve connecting with campaigns or government offices, which can lead to further opportunities -- as they have for a number of our former organizers.
Applicants should demonstrate strong verbal and written communication skills, attention to detail, and proficiency in standard office technology. They should be able to volunteer at least five to ten hours per week, possibly including some weekend hours. Finally, they should possess a genuine interest in politics and support the Democratic Party's platform and candidates. Please visit sddems.link/organizer for more information on how to apply.
