Our Summer Fellows

Tonight we're facing our end-of-quarter fundraising deadline. You know what we fundraise for: get-out-the-vote efforts, providing water and materials for our canvassers, and this month — sharing our strength with inspiring candidates around the country, like Dan McCready.

Right now we're fundraising to support an aspect of our campaign team you may not know about — our Summer Fellows program.

Every summer, we collect applications from highly motivated high school seniors and college students to engage in a summer internship program. This program provides participants with an opportunity to engage our local communities and learn about civic outreach firsthand.

I got to spend some time with them as they registered voters at a Juneteenth event in Worcester earlier this month!

We believe it is important to make this opportunity available to as many young people as possible — that means providing a stipend of $2,500 to each fellow. Your contributions help us ensure this program is inclusive and accessible.

Our fellows are involved in the planning and implementation of civic outreach, community meetings, and political events. Chip in before midnight tonight and help us fund this incredible program.
