Civic Engagement Internship Opportunities

Are you interested in building your resume with civic engagement experiences? There are currently two partnerships with UWM that offer paid opportunities for UWM students.

Andrew Goodman Foundation – Vote Everywhere Ambassador

Vote Everywhere is a national, non-partisan, civic engagement movement of student leaders and university partners. The flagship program of the Andrew Goodman Foundation provides extensive training, resources, as well as a peer network to support its Andrew Goodman Ambassadors while they work to register voters, bring down voting barriers, and tackle important social justice issues on their college campuses.


Vote Everywhere, a program of The Andrew Goodman Foundation (The AGF), activates youth civic engagement by connecting social issues to the ballot box. The Andrew Goodman Ambassador is an on-campus representative, advocate and champion for civic engagement. By inspiring and organizing peers, Andrew Goodman Ambassadors help students contribute their voice and build a healthier democracy.
The Ambassadorship is an internship for emerging leaders. The Ambassador receives ongoing leadership training and support from The AGF and the college Campus Champion. The AGF provides the Ambassador with $1,000 scholarship and a $1,000 activities budget per group, per year to engage students in voter education and registration initiatives as well as social issue activism.
Andrew Goodman Team Leaders and Ambassadors are representatives of the Andrew Goodman Vote Everywhere program on their campus. Vote Everywhere Ambassadors develop the leadership skills, confidence and strategic problems solving necessary to affect change on campus and beyond.
Ambassadors receive leadership training in the following areas:
• Voter engagement and outreach
• Campus organizing, coalition building, and volunteer management
• Public policy and/or advocacy strategic campaign development
In addition, Ambassadors have the opportunity to attend the annual Andrew Goodman National Civic Leadership Training Summit (“NCLTS”).

The fellowship is a 28-week leadership program for currently enrolled college students and is designed for students of all ages who are interested in engaging their peers in the electoral process.
