Interested in making a difference in city politics? Looking to bolster your resume and gain skills for future opportunities? Our Fellowship program is an excellent opportunity for students and young adults looking to get training and professional development in organizing and online activism.

We offer two separate summer programs: Organizing or Digital Fellows

Organizing Fellows

Marty Walsh for Boston is seeking organizing fellows to join the campaign and learn cutting-edge organizing techniques. Fellows will have the opportunity to gain valuable skills in direct voter contact and community outreach.

Organizing fellows will be responsible for:

Applicants will be accepted into the program on a rolling basis. We strongly encourage people of color, women, LGBT individuals, those with disabilities, and those with working class backgrounds to apply.
