INTERNSHIP - LET AMERICA VOTE

Come and intern with Let America Vote, Jason Kander’s new grassroots organization to protect voting rights! We are now accepting applications for our summer internship and fellowship programs – looking for bright, energetic individuals who want to learn the nuts and bolts of how a first-class political operation works. 

Participants will learn the basics of how to build a grassroots field program and help to elect candidates who will fight to support and protect our fundamental voting rights. They will engage in daily field activities, learn from and have access to seasoned campaign staff, and hear from a variety of political guest speakers. By learning the basics of campaign and political organizing, we will not only put together a strong ground-game program to elect candidates that share our mission in 2017, but teach everyone involved the skills necessary to run their own campaigns in 2018 and beyond.

Hours are very flexible, and the team here at Let America Vote is a lot of fun! No experience necessary. You will walk out the door at the end of the internship knowing how to run a local field program, as well as having met some great friends.

In addition, the organization is also offering a fellowship program for participants who are looking to be even more involved. With a greater time commitment, fellows will also benefit from our Field Organizer Training Program, where they’ll learn about grassroots organizing from a team of experts, preparing them to be even more effective in their roles within the organization, and also preparing them to work effectively on future advocacy, political campaigns, and other modes of valuable civic engagement. 

To apply, please visit letamericavote.org/intern, call us at 603-493-0089 or email us at intern.newhampshire@letamericavote.org

Teen Tech Tutors 

Do your grandparents (or your parents) ask for your help with technology, whether it's their phone or laptop? Are you good at explaining things, and patient as your "student" learns? Why not use that skill for community service? Be a Teen Tech Tutor and get paired with an older Wayland resident one-on-one for up to three one-hour sessions to answer their questions about how to use their device. Meet at the library on a schedule you choose. You won't believe how grateful your students will be for your help and attention. To sign up, contact Ann Gordon at the Wayland Council on Aging, agordon@wayland.ma.us

Greetings Students!

One Earth Collaborative is a program of Open Spirit – A Place of Hope, Health, and Harmony, and seeks to foster community through our shared connection to the Earth.

One Earth Collaborative is dedicated to transforming our consciousness and our culture by acknowledging and strengthening our spiritual connection to the Universe and all it contains and allowing that connection to move us to action and to meaningful changes in our lives and in our communities.

One Earth Collaborative achieves its goals through:

1) connecting people through conscious conversations, shared celebrations, interfaith learning, and advocacy for the Earth and its inhabitants;

2) nurturing our spiritual connection to the Earth and each other through outdoor exploration and interaction, for ourselves and our children, storytelling, and deep listening to strengthen us individually and communally; and

3) working together and sharing wisdom to help us learn to live more sustainably as individuals and as communities.

What we need:

One Earth Collaborative seeks assistance with online publicity and social media development. Being comfortable with writing and an interest in the outdoors are helpful. This work can be done at home and at the home of Rabbi Katy Allen, the facilitator of One Earth, who lives within walking distance of the high school.

For more information, please contact Katy Allen at info@oneearth.today  or 508-358-5996.
