Come and intern with the Quinn for New York campaign! The campaign is looking for bright, energetic individuals who want to learn the nuts and bolts of how a campaign works, and help elect the next Mayor of New York City.
Hours are completely flexible with a small requirement, and the Quinn Campaign team is a lot of fun. No experience necessary. You will walk out the door at the end of the internship knowing how to run a local field program, as well as having met some really great friends.
Additionally, the campaign is also offering a fellowship program for applicants who are looking to take their involvement with the campaign to the next level. Fellows will be required to have a greater time commitment than interns and will participate in our Field Organizer Training Program, where they will not only learn the basics of campaign field work, but will also gain in-depth knowledge of grassroots organizing so that they are ready to work on, and eventually run, campaigns of their own in the future!
The Quinn for New York intern and fellowship programs are designed to be an enriching educational experience, where participants will engage in daily field activities, learn from and have access to seasoned campaign staff, and hear from a variety of political guest speakers.
Please fill out the application at http://www.quinnfornewyork.com/intern and a staff member will be in contact with you. If you have any questions, please feel free to call us at 917-438-7063, or email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Join Chicano Caucus in our final event of the year, as we celebrate Cinco de Mayo with mariachis, dancing and of course, food! (provided by El Rey)
You don't want to miss Flor de Toloache, New York City's first all-female mariachi band, who will be playing out our event. Their group member's cultural background spans the globe from Puerto Rico, Mexico, Germany, Cuba, the Dominican Republic and the US, however, they still represent Mexican music adding their own sazón from their respective backgrounds. Be sure to stop by Lerner Party Space and check them out!
Tickets are $3 at the TIC (you can buy them online, as well)
NON CUID: Please include your first and last name to be admitted in to the event:
A little bit on the history of Cinco de Mayo:
Cinco de Mayo or El Día de la Batalla de Puebla, is a celebration held on May 5, celebrated widely in the United States and regionally in Mexico, primarily in the state of Puebla.
In the state of Puebla, the date is observed to commemorate the Mexican army's victory over French forces at the Battle of Puebla on May 5, 1862, under the leadership of General Ignacio Zaragoza Seguín.
Peace by PEACE, Community Impact's largest volunteer group, celebrates the graduation of approximately 275 elementary school students from our conflict resolution program each spring. The full day event features arts and crafts activities, field games, performances, and plenty of food. To ensure that our students have a blast at Columbia, we need your help ushering students, leading activities, and serving food!
Our annual Festival will take place on Friday, May 3 in Dodge Gymnasium. Please complete this form (http://tinyurl.com/pxpfestival) to confirm your participation and specify your availability. Support is needed all day, so we appreciate as much time as you can give! As added incentive, breakfast, lunch, and snacks are provided to all volunteers!
Thank you for helping to make our celebratory event amazing!
