Defend Our Health

Organizing Intern

June - August 2018 • Portland, ME

What I liked

I loved being in Portland, and working with the interns from other colleges. It was really interesting to learn about local Maine politics and become engaged in organizing strategies.

What I wish was different

There were definitely plenty of days when we didn't have much to do, since we could accomplish what needed to be done fairly quickly. A more structured and intense internship may have been more fulfilling, though it was interesting to have the free time and independence to make our own schedule and campaign plan.


Establish a relationship with your supervisors where you can ask for more work or work more related to things you're interested in if you're not feeling engaged.
