Future Now and Future Now Fund are seeking passionate, motivated students to intern with us spring 2020!
At Future Now and Future Now Fund, you’ll gain a valuable educational experience in the world of politics and policy at the state level. You’ll have the chance to work at a new organization that is changing the narrative around politics in our country. Next spring, we are looking for interns in the following departments:
Interns will be exposed to substantive work so that you can get an in-depth experience of what it’s like to work in the political and public policy sectors. In addition to daily work in your department and the opportunity to staff events, interns participate in brown bag lunches with our team, which gives you the opportunity to hear from varying levels of staff and learn from experts in the fields of politics, community organizing, law, and public policy.
Our program provides interns with invaluable training in policy analysis and political engagement. Your experience at Future Now and Future Now Fund will get you ready for exciting future opportunities in a range of fields, from working on campaigns to working on the Hill or at public policy think tanks.
We value diversity at Future Now and Future Now Fund. Women, people of color, trans/genderqueer, individuals with disabilities, and veterans are especially encouraged to apply.

Most of all, our interns believe in everything Future Now and Future Now Fund are trying to accomplish!
