Your ideas will help Democrats fight for rural folks and working people so that there are jobs and educational opportunities for all Tennesseans.

Apply for a Summer Internship with the TNDP

Tuesday, April 19th, 2011

Young people in Tennessee have never had less of a voice at our state capitol.

At a time when 1 out of 6 young people are out of work, Republicans have turned a deaf ear to their concerns by cutting investments in education, college and the economy.

Now is the time for a new generation of Tennesseans to step up and lead.

The Tennessee Democratic Party is looking for young people to join our summer TNDP Student Internship Program. Help us fill our program by sharing this link with someone who may be interested:

This summer the TNDP will begin training the next generation of political leaders — people who will make a difference by helping to elect strong candidates and strengthen our democracy in communities throughout Tennessee.

The TNDP Student Internship Program provides students of all levels and recent graduates an opportunity to play a hands-on role in politics.

TNDP Summer Interns will gain political leadership experience in areas such as grassroots organizing, fundraising, data management and campaign communications. Former TNDP interns have gone on to work on political campaigns, for government and have run for public office.

We’re looking for individuals who are ready to build the framework to turn Tennessee blue in 2012 and elect leaders who stand up for students entering the work force.

We have began interviewing for the program and space is limited. So don’t wait to contact us if you are interested in applying or know a student who would be perfect.

We are looking for interns who will commit to 20-40 hour/week. Please contact Kate Dobbins at (615) 327-9779 or by email at kate@tndp.org if you have questions.

Bringing One Tennessee Together

The Tennessee Values Summit will be the first step in 2011 the party takes to refocus on its “ground game,” said Chip Forrester, chairman of the state party.

“Tennesseans have a long history of engaging with one another at town hall-style events,” Forrester said. “So we’re going back to our roots. We’re going to bring Democrats together, discuss our values and talk about the best ways to communicate why we choose to stand up for rural folks and working people.”

The Tennessee Values Summit will take place at the Doubletree Hotel in Jackson. Democrats will open the Values Summit with a reception 7 p.m. Friday. The conference will conclude at 3:30 p.m. Sunday.

Democratic leaders and organizers from around the state will be in attendance.

Programs and workshops will educate Democrats on how best to message current issues and provide strategies for grassroots party building in their communities.

In an email to supporters, Forrester explained the program: “Learn how we plan to take back Tennessee for rural folks and working people by showing our families, friends and neighbors what it means to be a Democrat.”

The Summit motto is: Bringing One Tennessee Together.

Online registration is now open. For more information visit: http://www.tndp.org/page/the-tennessee-values-summit.
