About Evolve California:

Evolve California is a non-partisan, 501c(4) nonprofit founded in 2011 committed to fully-funding education in California through smart grassroots organizing. We know there are no easy and fast solutions to the huge issues we face today, especially in a system plagued by big money and political infighting. We believe the basic building block of political participation is one person talking to another. So we are building from the ground up, one conversation at a time. We are taking steps every day to achieve our long-term vision of a more equitable California.

We have been working for the past nine years to lay the foundation for historic Prop. 13 reform to finally reinvest in our schools and public services. We see this as the first step towards fully funding public education and ensuring that ALL of California’s students are given the chance to thrive. Through effective grassroots organizing--educating voters, organizing education advocates, and building a statewide network of elected and community leaders--we have made tremendous progress.

Internship Logistics:

Start date: June 1st

End date: August 20th

Start and end dates are flexible with the possibility of continuing the internship through the fall based on availability. We hope to return to the office sometime this summer, health and safety guidelines permitting. Candidates must be located in the Bay Area.

We offer a $500 stipend.

We also compensate for transit costs associated with the internship, if relevant. Upon program completion, interns may receive a letter of recommendation and professional reference for future opportunities. We will also gladly work with universities to offer course credit whenever possible.
