Internships


The Democratic Party of Wisconsin is looking for enthusiastic, politically minded future leaders for our Internship Program.   

Internships with the Democratic Party of Wisconsin are a unique opportunity for hardworking, passionate future leaders to gain real world, hands-on experience in Democratic politics, strengthen their understanding of the political process, and prepare for future political opportunities.

It's also a great way to form lasting connections and memories. Past interns have worked alongside DPW staffers at our annual State Convention, our Founders Day Gala, and other exciting events.

Internships are based in Madison at our State Party Headquarters. Internships are unpaid; however we are happy to furnish information as required to receive credit through your college or university.  We accept new interns throughout the school year and during the summer.

In addition to typical intern duties, you will have the chance to work on high level projects. Each department offers you a unique professional learning experience.
