Intern with ELM

We accept intern applications on a rolling basis. Here are some guidelines:

  • If you are interested in a spring internship, we recommend applying by November 1st.
  • If you are interested in a summer internship, we recommend applying by March 1st
  • If you are interested in a fall internship, we recommend applying by August 1st.

Our preference is to have interns work with us for a minimum of 15 hours per week for at least three months. Internships are paid and provide an excellent opportunity to learn about how things work at a small, statewide-focused, fast-paced advocacy organization. If you are passionate about our mission and believe you would be a strong contributor to our team, we’d like to hear from you. Organization, attention to detail, reliability, comfort working in a fast-paced environment, and ability to work collaboratively as well as with minimal supervision are some of the top qualities we seek. All internships pay $15 per hour or count for academic credit.
