MOVE currently has two positions within our leadership development program: an internship and a fellowship. Each intern or fellow works in the department of their choice; either field organizing, issue advocacy, or communications. Internships and fellowships are offered 3 times per year (spring, summer, and fall) in Austin, Dallas, Laredo, San Antonio, San Marcos, and Seguin.

 

Fellowship

Our fellowship is for folks who are ready to take the next step in their personal and professional development. Our fellows work directly with MOVE leadership to deepen our work, assist in key decision-making, mentor interns and volunteers, represent our organization in the community, and more. Fellows work 20-25 hours/week, which is split between hands-on work in their department, statewide team meetings, and a group research project on social movements. In addition, fellows attend an orientation at the beginning of the semester and graduation at the close of the semester.

Internship
Our internship is the perfect opportunity for folks looking to begin their career in community organizing, political advocacy, or the non-profit sector, as well as anyone who is passionate about creating change in their community. Interns work 10-15 hours/week, which is split between hands-on work in their department, statewide team meetings, and a group research project on social movements. In addition, interns attend an orientation at the beginning of the semester and graduation at the close of the semester.
