The Texas Freedom Network is currently accepting applications for a political internship program that I thought might interest your Political Science students at Texas State. Would you help us share this information with your students, particularly those who are motivated and who are looking for a political non-profit internship opportunity?
The Texas Freedom network was founded in 1995 by Gov. Ann Richards’ daughter, Cecile Richards, to protect religious freedoms, defend civil liberties and strengthen public schools. This internship fosters leadership and civic engagement skills in students who are interested in advocating for issues like public education, LGBTQ equality, comprehensive sex ed, access to birth control and the teaching of evolution. Interns will learn about state government, grassroots organizing and non-profit advocacy in a hands-on environment. This is an excellent opportunity for political science students who are looking to add real experience to their resume.
In addition to the information below, students can visit www.tfn.org/students to learn about how to apply for this internship. The final date to submit applications is May 12. Please let me know if you have any questions. I truly appreciate your help in passing this information along to students through email, class announcements and department newsletters.
