From some of our former interns:

“Interning at Arizona List gave me the opportunity to meet and work with a variety of smart women leaders.  I was able to utilize my passion for gender and women’s studies while learning about politics and comprehend the necessary skill sets to work for a grass roots organization. I was able to meet so many of our elected officials and candidates, canvass and collect signatures needed to bring change to Arizona, assist in event planning, gain extensive knowledge of fundraising and really build on my resume coming out of college. I was offered jobs as a fundraiser for an elected Arizona official within 8 months of my internship. I am truly grateful for all that I learned from Arizona List and would recommend their internship program to any young activist looking to hone their skills within the political and grassroots community. ”

“Interning at Arizona List gave me the opportunity to meet and work with a variety of smart women leaders.  Many of these women were attorneys or had attended law school and that is what motivated me to apply and attend law school.  Arizona List also gave me experience and practice with advocacy and community organizing.  I use those skills to run a student organization called Law for Youth Empowerment, a volunteer group that provide law related education and mentorship to incarcerated youth in Hawaii.  I currently work at the Legal Aid Society of Hawaii. ”

 Caitlin Axe, Former Intern

“Interning with Arizona List helped me develop lifelong skills and make vital connections that have helped me get where I am today. During my internship I was afforded so many opportunities to learn and grow, including assisting with the Women Vote canvas during the Midterm elections. I’m now using the outreach, event planning, and fundraising skills I learned at Arizona List to help an Arizona List endorsed representative start a non-profit from scratch.”

Kristin Park, Intern Fall and Summer 2014

“Thanks in part to my internship with Arizona List, I started my first full time job just 2 weeks after graduation! I’m currently working as the Special Events Coordinator for the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation in Phoenix, and also taking classes at ASU in the evening to get my Master’s in Public Policy. My time working with Arizona List taught me an immeasurable amount about the power of grassroots campaigns and engaged, passionate, informed citizens. I also came to really value women helping other women, networking, and pushing one another to make the world a better place. Arizona List is one of the most unabashedly optimistic organizations I know, which is incredibly refreshing and SO needed in the world of Arizona politics.”

– Leigh Jensen, Intern Fall 2014

“Arizona List showed me the power that a group of devoted individuals can have on state politics. These issues affect our everyday lives, and seeing powerful women stand up for what they believe in through a political campaign is one of the most inspiring opportunities that someone can be a part of.” – Natalie Lucas, Former Intern

“Arizona List showed me multiple facets behind the political word. From calling constituents, to networking with elected officials, I utilized my progressive, feminist ideologies for the greater good. ”

Eliza Molk, Former Intern

“The internship was extremely rewarding for me because I was able to actively participate in a variety of areas in the political world. I learned so much about what goes on behind the scenes during campaigns. The women and men that I worked with, whether it was at Arizona List, during campaigns, or at events, were absolutely wonderful to learn from.”
