BGTX Fellows

Be a part of building the grassroots movement to make Texas count!

Battleground Texas Fellows and Interns are a crucial part of our mission to make Texas elections competitive again. The goal of Battleground Texas fellowship and internship programs is to provide educational opportunities for Texans by teaching them to organize their communities.

What We're Looking For - Fellows

The ideal candidate is someone who is excited about electing progressives in Texas and ready to learn how to do it. Fellows are expected to actively participate in voter registration drives, phone banks, and volunteer-led meetings. It is vital that candidates are self-starters, have a passion for their work, are solution-oriented and ready to work with diverse groups of people. Our Fellows come from a variety of backgrounds, but all have a passion and commitment to making change.

Fellows will organize in their home communities, so we encourage you to apply no matter where in Texas you live. The position is unpaid and Fellows will work a minimum of 15 hours a week.

What We're Looking For - Headquarters Interns

While almost all Fellows will work in the field (where change is made!), Battleground Texas will have a limited number of intern positions available. Under the supervision of headquarters staff, interns will learn skills and tools to provide administrative support to staff and volunteers in the field.

Interns will work a minimum of 10 hours a week and will be located in Austin. This internship is unpaid, is primarily for educational purposes, and is not expected to lead to an offer of permanent employment.

Battleground Texas is committed to diversity among its staff, and recognizes that its continued success requires the highest commitment to obtaining and retaining a diverse staff that provides the best quality services to supporters and constituents.
