The Kermit Jones campaign is really trying to get more young people involved in politics and this campaign. Our internship program includes mandatory skills workshops and a speaker series every week in which the Campaign Manager and I get people from different high levels of political and government departments and campaigns from all over the country to get on Zoom with them for 30 minutes.
The interns knock on doors, make calls, attend events, staff Kermit, and help with everything in between around the office. (They have a lot of fun, too.) As many of you may know, they are also successfully creating amazing ideas and content for our Social Media. We unfortunately do not have the money for interns to be paid. But we are super flexible working with their schedules, and we offer things such as recommendation letters and references. We take the program very seriously and do everything in our power to make this a positive, learning experience for them.
We already have an absolutely amazing group of interns and have had so much success that we are looking to expand it as much as possible. We also have interns working with us remotely, so they do not have to be in the Placer County area in order to intern. We are running summer and fall programs for these high school and college students. They are also our connection to the youth vote.
