The Vermont Republican Party is pleased to announce a Summer Fellowship program. High School graduates and college students are encouraged to apply.

The program is one of many initiates the Vermont Republican Party is deploying in preparation for the 2016 election. Last year, Vermont Republicans made great strides in attracting younger voters; including running several young Republicans for office. To make an even greater impact for Vermonters, we must continue to engage, recruit and train millennials in grassroots campaign management and civic engagement — as well as encourage our young people to run for office themselves.

The program will run from June 1, 2015 to the end of August. Fellows will be working on a host of tasks including communications, social media, data collection, and other grassroots organizing efforts.

Candidates can apply by filling out the application posted online and sending to Jeffrey Bartley at jeff@vtgop.org.
