JB for Governor Internship Program

Join the JB for Governor campaign as a student intern! Tell us about yourself, why you'd like to join, and let us know when you're available. Student internships are a great way to volunteer for the campaign while you're in school, or on break, and gain valuable experience in political organizing in Illinois.
