Summer for Progress and Change

DEADLINE: Applications will be accepted on a rolling basis between May 4 – June 1. Priority will be given to applications received by Wednesday, May 13.

About the Summer for Progress & Change Campaign

As the critical 2020 Elections are quickly approaching, Blue Future is excited to launch a 10-week paid organizing program for the summer of 2020! As part of this program, young people will have the opportunity to volunteer directly for candidates fighting for change and make a difference on some of the most competitive campaigns across the country.

This program is a training opportunity for young people to stay engaged in campaigns during the summer months. The program will be completely digital and remote to allow students anywhere to get involved while practicing physical distancing during the COVID-19 pandemic.

For 10 weeks between June 1 – August 17, organizers will get paid to be trained and commit to volunteering for 10 hours per week and engage in phone banking, text banking, and registering voters, in coordination with competitive campaigns for the House, Senate, and White House.
