This scholar program is a mentorship program in public service and public affairs, Fox Scholars are matched one-on-one with an experienced mentor working in a related public affairs area. There is a stipend offer of $1000.

The James P. Fox Memorial Fund was founded in 2017 to create a living legacy to honor Jamie Fox (October 30, 1954 – February 20, 2017), recognize his lifelong commitment to public service, and to fund educational opportunities in areas about which he cared deeply.

​In February 2018, the James P. Fox Memorial Fund announced the establishment of two academic mentoring programs in partnership with Montclair State University and The College of New Jersey. Both initiatives bring to life one of Jamie’s passions: mentoring young people and helping them understand what it takes to succeed in government service. Each program (#FoxMentors) shares one goal: to provide students with real-life public-sector experience and advice through mentorship and networking opportunities, with the goal of facilitating knowledge of and access to public service employment opportunities.

Application Deadline: October 22nd.

My name is Stephen and I am the District Director for the Congressional Leadership Fund, an organization based out of D.C. dedicated to supporting Republican candidates for the U.S. House of Representatives. I wanted to reach out to you today to let you know that we have an incredibly unique internship opportunity in the area open to students interested in politics available to start immediately, and go till the end of the Fall semester. I am very excited to provide young adults a chance to get involved in the extraordinary political processes of our country, as their generation is everything to our future!

With so many topics headlining today’s political conversation, it’s critical for millennials to make their voices heard, and what a perfect way to do so by earning college credit or service hours while doing so! Additionally, one of the main goals of our internship program is setting them up for success not only in the short term, but to look ahead as well…Past interns have found the program to be particularly helpful in enhancing their resumes for their future political endeavors, such as state government, journalism, campaign or district staff, as well as working up on Capitol Hill; it’s all very likely because it’s already taken place!

I’m sure you are busy preparing lesson plans and advocating for your students as classes get going, but I was hoping that you could do me the great favor of passing the attached flier along to your students either by printing off hard copies or by email, both work well! I would also like to say that I’d be more than happy to answer any questions that you may have beforehand, whatever you need to know works for me…And if you do forward this information along, I would like you to let me know so I can thank you properly, and I’ll be sure to let you know if any of your leads come aboard too!

Ultimately, it would be so wonderful to have even MORE applicants join us from the legendary institution of TCNJ, as we currently have rock stars on the roster in Chris Driscoll, Dylan Novick, Isaac Trent, Jeremy Whaley, Jesse Stiller, Josh Chanley, Megan Giaimo, and my two Deputies Peter Shenouda and Will Roddy!

I appreciate this so much, and if you would like to get a feel of just what exactly I’ve been doing out here in the Philly/Jersey area, please read this tremendously written TIME article that features our head honcho Corry Bliss, myself, and my previous team last year in Omaha, NE just below…Again, I definitely look forward to hearing from you soon, and good luck to awesome grades and perfect attendance! 😉

With so many topics headlining today’s political conversation, it’s critical for millennials to make their voices heard (like the Students for Life club recently tried to do, and you all handled so well), and this is the perfect way by earning college credit while doing so. One of the main goals of our internship program is setting them up for success not only now, but looking ahead as well, and past interns have found the program to be particularly helpful in enhancing their resumes for future political endeavors. In my experience, students have parlayed time on a campaign into positions with state government, as well as on Capitol Hill; it’s very likely!

I’m sure you are busy, but I was hoping you could pass the attached flier along to your students either by printing off hard copies or by email, either works well, and I’d be more than happy to answer any questions that you may have beforehand. And if you do forward this information along, I would like you to let me know so that I can thank you properly. It would be wonderful to have some Poli Sci applicants come from such a reputable, namesake institution like yours of this great state! I appreciate this so much, and if you would like to get a feel of just what exactly I’m starting up out here, please read this tremendously written TIME article that feature CLF’s head honcho Corry Bliss, as well as the previous office team I had back in Omaha, NE, (I’m in the blue sweater), and I definitely look forward to hearing from you soon!

Internships Available

 

This is a reminder that there is still time to apply for Summer internships.

The Latin American News Digest is seeking qualified students for a limited number of internships for Summer 2018. Because the goal of the Digest is essentially a didactic one, to spread the word about news from Latin America, we feel strongly about providing the opportunity for students to participate in this process. Student writers and researchers contribute to our weekly issues by aggregating and writing summaries of news articles found in Latin American sources. Ideally, internships happen in tandem with an independent study led by a faculty member of the appropriate department, but this is not a requirement. The result is an enriching experience for students who discover a variety of perspectives within the Latin American media. Students are able to identify trends and anomalies in the region, giving them a much greater breadth of knowledge and understanding of the hemisphere in which they live.

Intern responsibilities:
Interns must be able to write brief aggregations in English that summarize multiple perspectives from newspapers written in Spanish, and sometimes in Portuguese or English. Typically, interns write 1000-1200 words per week (3-4 section articles or News in Brief items). Interns generally work approximately five-six hours per week with most of that work falling on Wednesdays and Thursdays since submissions are due on Fridays. This internship does not require onsite work. Interns work remotely, but need to be readily available via email, cell and skype.

Summer 2018 internships begin on May 15 and end on August 31. Interns are expected to be available during that time; however, consideration will be given to “breaks” in the schedule if they are arranged with sufficient prior notice.

Intern qualifications:
Interns must possess excellent writing skills in English and advanced reading skills in Spanish. Ability to read Portuguese is a plus. Familiarity with Latin American civilization and culture, as well as general current events is highly recommended. The ability to meet deadlines is essential.

Application process:
Interns should submit a letter of interest as an example of their writing skills to Dr. Jana M. DeJong (jdejong@hsc.edu). The letter should outline the intern’s experience (coursework, travel, etc.) as it pertains to language skills and knowledge of Latin America. The names and contact information for two references must be included. One of the references must address the applicant’s ability to write in English, while the other should address the applicant’s reading ability in Spanish and/or Portuguese. One of the references should also speak to the applicant’s familiarity with Latin America. The letter of interest and contact information for two references must be submitted by April 6, 2018, (or thereabouts).

If you have any questions, please contact wjohngreen@latinamericannewsdigest.com

Campus Organizing Internship with Parano & Associates

Parano & Associates is seeking passionate students, ready to join the fight for progressive causes and candidates across the state.  Interns will be on the front lines, mobilizing voters and building self-sufficient organizations on their college campuses in preparation for the 2017 New Jersey legislative and gubernatorial election–a race Vice President Joe Biden has called the “most important” in the nation.

About the Program

Interns will work alongside our experienced team of campaign operatives to plan and execute a robust campus outreach program and advocate on behalf of progressive Democratic candidates up and down the ballot, including candidates for Senate and Assembly, and Phil Murphy, the Democratic Candidate for Governor.

At the core of our program is the idea that true progressive change is achieved from the bottom up, engaging local activists and giving them the tools to make differences in their own communities.  As such, our program is student driven–while our campaign organizers provide training, set goals and oversee operations, our campus outreach program is managed and directed by students who demonstrate initiative, responsibility, and passion for our message and cause.

Responsibilities Include

●      Organizing communities to stand up against the destructive policies of the Trump and Christie administrations in a time that’s critical for progressives across the country

●      Brainstorming and enacting creative plans to contact and mobilize students like you

●      Developing and carrying out a regular voter registration program to meet statewide campaign goals

●      Raising awareness and boosting civic engagement on campus through visibility and outreach events

●      Identifying and persuading voters to support our progressive candidates and causes

●      Building teams of like-minded students willing and ready to join our movement

●      Coordinating operations with other student organizations and our local campaign teams

Requirements

Qualified candidates will have a positive attitude, a willingness to learn, and a desire to support Democrats and effect progressive change across the state.  All are encouraged to apply, regardless of experience. Candidates will be accepted on a rolling basis throughout the summer and fall, with preference for availability during fall move-in days.  Applications should include a brief statement of interest and a resume.  Submit applications to Daniel Fleiss at victory2017@paranoandassociates.com with subject “Campus 2017 Application.”

Internships Available

The Latin American News Digest is seeking qualified students for a limited number of internships for Fall 2017. Because the goal of the Digest is essentially a didactic one, to spread the word about news from Latin America, we feel strongly about providing the opportunity for students to participate in this process.

Student writers and researchers contribute to our weekly issues by aggregating and writing condensed versions of news articles found in Latin American sources. Ideally, internships happen in tandem with an independent study led by a faculty member of the appropriate department, but this is not a requirement. The result is an enriching experience for students who discover a variety of perspectives within the Latin American media.

As a culmination of their internship, students get their own byline in the December issue by researching and writing their own aggregation. The July issue intern aggregations are on the site now, which you can access at www.latinamericannewsdigest.com.

Intern responsibilities: 
Interns must be able to write brief aggregations in English that summarize multiple perspectives from newspapers written in Spanish, and sometimes in Portuguese or English. Typically, interns write 1000-1200 words per week (4-6 section articles or News in Brief items). Interns generally work approximately five-six hours per week with most of that work falling on Wednesdays and Thursdays since submissions are due on Fridays. This internship does not require onsite work.  Interns work remotely, but need to be readily available via email, cell phone, or skype.

Fall 2017 internships begin on September 5 and end on January 5, 2018. Interns are expected to be available during that time; however, consideration will be given to “breaks” in the schedule if they are arranged with sufficient prior notice.

Intern qualifications:
Interns must possess excellent writing skills in English and advanced reading skills in Spanish and/or Portuguese.  Familiarity with Latin American civilization and culture, as well as general current events, is essential, as is the ability to meet deadlines.

Application process:
Interns should submit a letter of interest as an example of their writing skills to Dr. Jana M. DeJong (jdejong@hsc.edu). The letter should outline the intern’s experience (coursework, travel, etc.) as it pertains to language skills and knowledge of Latin America. The names and contact information for two references must be included.  One of the references must address the applicant’s ability to write in English, while the other should address the applicant’s reading ability in Spanish and/or Portuguese.  One of the references should also speak to the applicant’s familiarity with Latin America. The letter of interest and contact information for two references must be submitted by August 25, 2017.

If you have any questions, please contact wjohngreen@latinamericannewsdigest.com

Internships Available

The Latin American News Digest invites you to nominate students for a limited number of internships for Spring 2017. Because the goal of the Digest is essentially a didactic one, to spread the word about news from Latin America, we feel strongly about providing the opportunity for students to participate in this process. Student writers and researchers contribute to our weekly issues by aggregating and writing summaries of news articles found in Latin American sources. Ideally internships happen in tandem with an independent study led by a faculty member of the appropriate department, but this is not a requirement. The result is an enriching experience for students who discover a variety of perspectives within the Latin American media. Students are able to identify trends and anomalies in the region, giving them a much greater breadth of knowledge and understanding of the hemisphere in which they live.

Intern responsibilities:
Interns must be able to write brief aggregations in English that summarize multiple perspectives from newspapers written in Spanish, and sometimes in Portuguese or English. Typically interns write 1000-1200 words per week (4-6 section articles or News in Brief items). Interns generally work approximately five-six hours per week with most of that work falling on Wednesdays and Thursdays since submissions are typically due by noon Eastern Standard Time on Fridays. This internship does not require onsite work. Interns work remotely, but need to be readily available via email, cell and skype.

Spring 2017 internships begin on January 3 and end in mid-May. Interns are expected to be available during that time; however, consideration will be given to “breaks” in the schedule if they are arranged with sufficient prior notice.

Intern qualifications:
Interns must possess excellent writing skills in English and advanced reading skills in Spanish. Ability to read Portuguese is a plus. Familiarity with Latin American civilization and culture, as well as general current events is highly recommended. The ability to meet deadlines is essential.

Application process:
Interns should submit a letter of interest as an example of their writing skills to Dr. Jana M. DeJong ( jdejong@hsc.edu ). The letter should outline the intern’s experience (coursework, travel, etc.) as it pertains to language skills and knowledge of Latin America. The names and contact information for two references must be included. One of the references must address the applicant’s ability to write in English, while the other should address the applicant’s reading ability in Spanish and/or Portuguese. One of the references should also speak to the applicant’s familiarity with Latin America. The letter of interest and contact information for two references must be submitted by November 28, 2016.

If you have any questions, please contact wjohngreen@latinamericannewsdigest.com

Put A Price On It is a grassroots campaign working to engage millennials to advocate for something incredibly important: a price on carbon. This Fall we’re kicking off this campaign, which we are working on in conjunction with Years of Living Dangerously, an Emmy award winning television show from National Geographic.

Our movement is picking up steam, as we testified in front of the DNC a few weeks ago about the importance and urgency surrounding a carbon price! In fact, the DNC actually adopted a carbon price into the platform.
 
Our primary focus over the next six months will be recruiting and engaging students to lobby for a carbon price, and securing endorsements from college presidents. 
 
Student leaders from your university can play a vital part of this effort. 
 
We’re currently accepting applications for our fellowship program, in case you know of anyone who might want to apply. We’d love to hear from as many applicants as possible! Any questions can be sent to Cassidy Jones at cassidy@oregonclimate.org!

We are writing on behalf of the Mexican Cultural Center and The Consulate of Mexico in Philadelphia, PA to let you know about our annual Mexican Independence Day Festival, which is part of the PECO multicultural series, which will be held on Sunday, September 18th from 2-8pm at Penn’s Landing.

This event is one of the largest and most well-attended cultural events in the area, with around 11,000 attendees annually. Our festival offers live performances by popular musicians, Mexican cuisine provided by local restaurants, a traditional “El Grito” ceremony led by the Consul of Mexico, a Kid’s Corner, and other activities. It is a great event that helps the local Mexican community stay connected to their heritage, as well as educating the region on Mexican culture.

We are currently in search of volunteers to help us with set-up, clean-up, and the running of different stations during the festival. Volunteers with a proficiency in Spanish would be preferable for our event; however, all are welcome to participate.

We have created a spreadsheet where interested volunteers can input their contact info, t-shirt size, and shift preference:

Environment New Jersey

Environment New Jersey is hiring students to work on our campaigns this summer in New Jersey. We’re looking for folks that are hardworking, good communicators, and committed to making positive change.

This summer our top campaign is saving the bees! This has been a problem for over a decade, but now bee keepers are reporting losing on average a third of bee populations each year. This is a huge environmental and economic issue, because bees pollinate everything from strawberries to coffee, and even the food that dairy animals eat which give us ice cream and cheese.

One cause of this issue is that bees have increasingly exposed to a class of insecticides called neonicotinoids, which are powerful neurotoxins. However, chemical companies like Syngenta are working to convince the EPA to raise the allowable limit of one of their bee-killing pesticides by more than 400 times.

That’s why we are working to push Obama’s Environmental Protection Agency to speed up the testing on neonics, and to eventually ban the use of these toxins. But to do that, we need to demonstrate the public’s support. To win this campaign, we are hiring folks to get out into communities, and build support for this issue based out of our New Brunswick office. Over the course of the summer you can expect to make between $4,000-$6,000 and make $10-$15/HR. It’s a great way to build your resume, like an internship, but you get paid.

To sign up to learn more email Marc Katronetsky at mkatronetsky@fundstaff.org
