Internships

Democracy Now! Internships are paid, 20 hour per week, temporary work placements to help students, people early in their careers and career changers to gain entry-level skills and experience in the fields of outreach, social media, education, fundraising, translation and archiving in a non-profit setting. All internships take place at our Manhattan studio where we produce our daily TV and radio news hour.

Democracy Now! staff provide one-on-one mentorship and supervision to help Interns maximize their educational experience. Where possible, Democracy Now! will provide assistance to Interns requesting academic or work-study credit.

The Internship program is offered in two sessions per year. Interns work with our Archive, Democracy Now! en Español, Education, Outreach & Development and Social Media departments.

Early career journalists interested in opportunities with our Production department should apply for our Fellowship Program.
