"I love interning with the Worker's Center. It's a unique place and community where we intertwine struggles including healthcare, the environment, work with dignity, migrant rights, etc. so we can understand how all of these struggles are connected at their very core. From there it's easy to understand how building solidarity across struggles is ultimately our best strategy for achieving collective liberation and making the systematic change we need to deliver a healthy, more equitable world. I believe the Worker's Center organizes our community with these principles in mind better than any other organization I have worked with." - Jess Fuller, 2015 VWC Intern
The Vermont Workers' Center has limited internship opportunities for 2016. Some of the areas we've offered internships in the past have been community organizing, media/communications, administrative, fundraising, policy and popular education.

Your cover letter must include: Why you are interested in interning with the VWC, what specific skills you want to build and what specific experience you are bringing.

All internships require a minimum commitment of 10-15 hours a week, including flexibility to attend evening and weekend events and meetings.
