Intern with Why Marriage Matters Arizona

Internship (1)Why Marriage Matters Arizona (WMMAZ) is a grassroots public education campaign to build support for marriage equality in Arizona. This campaign is about having conversations and sharing stories, showing that same-sex couples and their families should be welcomed and treated fairly in Arizona. This project was founded by Equality Arizona, the ACLU of Arizona, the Human Rights Campaign, and Freedom to Marry. WMMAZ has an immediate opening for several interns. We are looking for energetic and self-motivated people to join our team focused on increasing support of marriage for all loving and committed couples.

WMMAZ is offering more than your typical internship. We can make our own coffee; we are looking for people to help lead this organization. In return for your service, we seek to reward our interns with an educational and networking experience that will enhance your future professional or public service career.

WMMAZ is looking for interns to fill the following roles:

Business Outreach – The Business Outreach intern will coordinate with WMMAZ staff and board members on outreach to the business community, and will manage databases of local businesses and business leaders.

Finance – The Finance intern will work with the Finance Director to manage lists and call time, and will also help implement our house party program; she or he will also be responsible for making low-dollar asks and conducting donor research.

Organizer – This intern will recruit and organize volunteers for events; help with basic office work; help identify storytellers and conduct story intake interviews.

Faith Organizer – This intern will work with the Faith Director to maximize the effectiveness and impact of our faith outreach and help drive attendance and participation in faith events.

The most important requirement we ask of our interns is commitment to the program, both intellectually and in terms of your time. We are flexible, and will work with you to find a schedule that works for the best possible experience.

We are willing to tailor our intern program to meet an individual’s needs in order to qualify for academic credit, but ask students to research the necessary steps on their own initiative.

A small stipend is available for outstanding candidates.
