Internships & Other Off Campus Opportunities
RE-ELECT OHIO'S GOVERNOR JOHN KASICH & LT. GOVERNOR MARY TAYLOR
Receive real experience on a political campaign and affect real change for Ohio. The Kasich-Taylor Campaign Headquarters recently opened in Columbus and is looking for dedicated students that would like to assist in political operations for the campaign. All positions are unpaid. We will work around your school schedule. Contact Scott Blake, 561-452-2841, Scott@KasichForOhio.com.
Since Wittenberg, I have received a wonderful opportunity to work with City Year in Columbus. City Year is an international non-profit organization where young adults dedicate a year of service to help the students who are at risk of dropping out of high school and work towards ending the drop out crisis. City Year is a great program for students who are unsure of where they want to go after graduation, want a gap year before Grad school, or are still trying to pay for undergrad. Part of my job is to recruit Corps Members for next year. Interested students can contact me directly. Thank you, Erica Pence
Students may apply for these internships by responding to the attached materials. We will interview and select participants for these internships. Students may register for them in a department with a departmental advisor in the usual way or register for credit in Urban Studies with Dr. Copeland as their advisor.
Students may design an internship in the usual manner but add on participation in the orientation, weekly sessions and final presentation of the Hagen Center. We assume that the design for these internships and the assignment of credit will involve a faculty advisor in the appropriate department or program. The Hagen Center will require that one credit assigned to the internship be designated as requiring full participation in these Hagen Center elements in order to assure that students feel a responsibility to participate fully. Students choosing this option will need to apply for inclusion in the Hagen Center program once they have designed their internship in consultation with a faculty member of the department or program where the internship is to receive academic credit.
OHIO FREEDOM TO MARRY AND RELIGIOUS FREEDOM ADMENDMENT
The Ohio Freedom to Marry and Religious Freedom Amendment ("FreedomOhio") is currently seeking interns to help organize colleges as we gear up for the 2014 campaign, when the issue will be on the ballot. They will help assist with signature collection and verification efforts during this first stage, as well as events to raise awareness on campus (and in and around Springfield, if they feel comfortable). The second stage after signature collection will involve the campaign itself, and building support before the election.
