AAI offers internships for summer 2008

Want to be part of the most exciting election of today's generation?

The Arab American Institute is pleased to announce our 2008 summer/fall paid Field Organizing Internships. This is a great opportunity for rising juniors, seniors, grad students or recent graduates who are interested in community organizing and voter mobilization. Interns will be provided with extensive preparation and guidance during an all-expenses-paid training in Washington, DC at the end of May and will be a part of AAI's "Our Voice. Our Future: Yalla Vote 2008" campaign. Positions are available in six states: New York, New Jersey, Michigan, Ohio, California and Florida. Interns will gain a full understanding of the Arab American community and will have invaluable experience with ethnic outreach. The experience--exposure, networking with other field organizers, and planning political events--will prepare interns for work in almost any sector!

If you are interested, or you know a passionate politico in the making, please get in touch or forward this announcement on to a prospective intern.

For more information on the internships and how to apply, please visit: Applications are due by April 16, 2008. Have you signed the Yalla Vote 2008 National Petition yet? Sign the Arab American petition online and make your voice heard this election year. We will deliver the petition and accompanying signatures to the Democratic and Republican presidential nominees at their parties' nominating conventions at the end of the summer.
