NCGOP Internship Available

Posted by Annie on Jul 14, 2014 in college, high school, North Carolina

Here is a great opportunity for some homeschooled youth. The North Carolina Republican Party is looking for students who would like to participate in an unpaid internship.

Boots on the Ground

Boots on the Ground

I am looking to provide some local homeschoolers with an internship in the political arena. I have attached our internship sign-up/info sheet, and the Boots on the Ground flyer.

This is an unpaid internship, however, the rewards of experience for anyone considering politics is astronomical as they prepare for college and a future in public policy or politics.

Please let me know if you have any questions concerning our program.


  • It would be helpful to have a Smartphone, but not essential.
  • Must have access to transportation
  • Must be able and willing to canvas neighborhoods for at least 10 hours a week (this is flexible).

To apply to the NCGOP Internship Program download this application.
