Bonjour Young Democrats!

Democrats Abroad France is now accepting applications for interns. DA France is one of the largest and oldest country committees of Democrats Abroad—the official arm of the Democratic Party for the millions of Americans living outside the United States. We are a volunteer-run organization with a presence across France.

Interns must have papers authorizing them to reside in France (as a student, employee or other).

We offer networking and social opportunities to interns, as well as training in voter registration, media/communications, and phonebanking.
