Faith in Public Life Internship Opportunities: Fall 2023 – Winter 2024
Faith in Public Life (FPL) advances the moral imperative for a just, inclusive and equitable country that allows each of us to live into our full humanity and advocate for policies that protect and advance our sacred human rights.
Our coalition of influential faith leaders – who reflect the diversity of the nation – collectively discern, set faith-forward strategy and take transformative action. By building cultures of belonging, leveraging the collective power of our multi-faith and multi-racial coalition and advocating for policies that protect the full humanity of each of us, our strategy hub leads us closer to realizing a healthy and equitable democracy.
Faith in Public Life is seeking up to two interns in the fall of 2023 to assist with a mapping project, a “catalog” of pro-democracy organizations, and a few other areas of work:
- Mapping Project:
- Collect and organize data from social media accounts of top 300-400 potential candidates for the coalition identified by the project consultant
- Clean and organize religious affiliation data collected by the project consultant
- Pro-Democracy Catalog:
- Identify and annotate faith-based and secular pro-democracy organizations, particularly those that are working on expanding access to the ballot and combating political violence
Other duties will be assigned as these projects evolve and additional needs are identified.
Qualifications and Expectations
Successful candidates will have many, though not necessarily all, of the following skills and experiences:
- Ability to sift through data and ascertain what is relevant, with great attention to detail
- Ability to successfully work independently (with support and guidance)
- Track record of meeting deadlines
- Ability to keep large amounts of data clean and organized
- Interns will work directly with the consultant we hire for the project in terms of their assigned work, but will be supervised by staff. Supervision will include weekly check-ins on tasks, roadblocks, and learnings. Interns will also be invited to select staff-wide professional development offerings and to select organizing and/or communications team trainings (attendance optional, depending on interest/availability).
Interns will be paid $15/hour for 18-20 hours/week over the course of October – February 2023. Interns will not receive course credit for their work.
To apply, please email your resume to firstname.lastname@example.org with “Internship application” in the subject line, along with a few sentences about why you are interested in working with Faith in Public Life.
Applications will be accepted on a rolling basis.
