Founded in 1971, the mission of the Massachusetts Women’s Political Caucus, a non-partisan membership organization, is to help recruit, train, and elect more qualified, pro-choice women to public office. The MWPC is a non-profit, women-run grassroots organization and the state affiliate of the National Women’s Political Caucus. We have many opportunities for you such as the projects listed below, and campaign work.
The Goal of the Massachusetts Women’s Political Caucus Internship Program is to provide the interns with a positive learning experience within the women’s political movement. Interns work on the ongoing programs and administration of the MWPC under supervision of the Associate Director. Internships are tailored to best suit the student’s needs, be it for a resume listing and/or a college credit requirement. Internships are available every semester throughout the year and during the summer months.
