Internship Program

Join the Fight for Equality and Receive College Credit!

We are in need of energized and dynamic young leaders to become a part of the work being done across the state to create a fair and safe environment for all Floridians, regardless of sexual orientation or gender identity.

Equality Florida is currently looking for students from all fields of study and backgrounds to fill internship positions in our Field, Public Policy, and Communications Departments. Each intern will report directly to a supervisor whom will oversee internship projects, assignments, and tasks on a daily basis. Prospective interns will be interviewed and selected by the Field, Public Policy, Communications, and/or Human Resources Director respectively.

What's in it for You?

The movement towards GLBT equality cannot be won overnight. If we are to reach our goals it is imperative that we support and foster leadership in those who will continue the fight. As an EQFL Intern, students will learn the basic and advanced skills needed to become effective grassroots organizers.

Interns will be challenged to master skills that include: effective oral and written communication, volunteer and outreach management, coalition building, legislative tracking and analysis, and issue-based lobbying and public education.

How to Apply

Please submit a resume and one page cover letter stating which internship you are interested in, the semester and calendar months for which you are applying, and biographical information. The cover letter should also include information about why you would like to work as an Equality Florida intern and what you hope to gain from your work with us. Applicants can include information on past political/organizing experiences though it is not required.
