Progressive Pipeline is partnering with LeadMO to recruit, train, and support a paid summer fellow. We’re looking for students who are committed to progressive causes and eager to launch their careers. Past political experience isn’t expected or required.

We place our fellows in paid internships and full-time jobs with our hiring partners––social change groups that share our commitment to diversity, equity, inclusion, and justice. During our screening and matching process, we’ll aim to find you a placement that’s aligned with your background, interests, and experiences.

Before you start your fellowship, you’ll participate in a sequence of career readiness trainings. We’ll share best practices for managing up, asking for feedback, building workplace relationships, networking, and navigating questions of purpose and belonging at work––so you have all the tools you need to succeed in the program.

By participating in the program, you’ll build relationships with the other fellows in your cohort and join our community of more than 300 Progressive Pipeline alumni. You’ll leave with a network of friends and mentors, and we’ll help you leverage your connections to move forward in your career.


Take 10 minutes to complete our application, and we’ll consider you for a range of paid internships and entry-level jobs with our hiring partners. If you’re accepted, we’ll offer you wrap-around training, coaching, and career support. No past experience is expected or required. Our application is straightforward and easy to complete (we mean it — it only takes about 15 minutes!). Resumes are optional, and we don’t ask for cover letters. There aren’t any trick questions: we just want to get a sense of who you are and what drives you.
