Become a Civic Leadership Fellow

DCTMI is looking for students (undergraduate or graduate) and community members wanting to have a positive impact on the Washington, DC, education landscape and help create a national model for civic transformation. The Civic Leadership Fellows program is a paid, year-long opportunity to develop your leadership skills, gain tangible community organizing experience through face-to-face outreach, and grow in your ability to be a centered, self-aware, kind, and courageous human being and leader.

Web Design

Learn how to code and use different applications you can use in the real world. You will have the opportunity to work on web development, database management, and more!

Social Media/ Marketing

Manage social media accounts while exploring different ways to increase engagement and exposure. Use analytic and statistical data to grow our following.

Community Outreach

Reach out and manage different community organizations and volunteers. Learn valuable communication, organization, and management skills while growing your DC network.

Internship positions

Want real world experience? Look no further!

Becoming a DCTMI intern is an excellent way to take on projects supporting your career goals and interests. Our goal is to prepare you to be the thoughtful, courageous, and dynamic mission-driven professionals and change agents that the world needs today.

Interns are expected to participate in two meetings a week: one civic leadership meeting and one tactical/operational meeting at the beginning of each week. Interns’ responsibilities fall into two buckets: supporting the day-to-day operations of matching volunteers with partners, updating the database, and canvassing on weekends/in the evenings. 

We expect 10-20 hours during the academic year and 30-40 hours over the summer. These internships are paid at a competitive hourly rate.

Become an outreach lead

Outreach with Us

Are you an agent of change? Are you willing to get out of your comfort zone to have important discussions about things that matter? 

Our outreach activities do just that, both face-to-face and virtually. The face-to-face includes canvassing and tabling at public spaces such as farmers markets and festivals, the virtual includes phone banking to connect with people who have signed up with us. 

We offer volunteer and paid positions (depending on level of commitment and performance).
