FPM Internships

Want to change the world?

Make a difference protecting the rights of private homeschoolers in California!

FPM Internships are a unique opportunity to see and participate in the legislative process up close!

Are you a young person with a passion for public policy, and are you interested in the legislative process or defending homeschool freedom?

The Program:

FPM Internships offer a life changing, hands on experience that will allow young people to learn about the workings of our California Capitol and influencing the legislative process. Whether your interests are writing, photography, research, bookkeeping, or computers, we have an opportunity for you to get involved and make a difference. FPM Interns learn how working behind the scenes can be incredibly effective while they are acquiring experience and skills valuable for a wide range of other work and service.

Now Accepting Applications

FPM is currently accepting applications for interns in our office; if you know of anyone who you believe is qualified and a good fit, please have them contact us for more information or to request an application.

Who Should Apply:

We are looking for individual(s) who have a commitment to the freedom of private home education and are responsible, articulate, and eager to learn the legislative process. All FPM Interns learn to evaluate legislation based on a Biblical/Christian worldview. This is crucial to developing discernment in today’s world.

The internship program is flexible depending on the strengths and desired learning outcomes of each intern. Assignments can range from office work (including answering phones, editing emails and articles, and scanning documents), social media and website design, information technology, to attending hearings and delivering letters at the Capitol.

We are particularly looking for students with these skills or interests:

  • Advocacy in the California Legislature
  • Social media
  • Web design
  • Graphic design
  • Writing
  • Email and newsletter editing
  • Information technology

Although we look for high school graduates or college students, we will consider an exceptional high school senior.

Benefits and College Credit:

Benefits to the intern include valuable experience and training for future employment, a Letter of Recommendation and Certificate of Completion, and important contacts at FPM and networking opportunities while on assignments.

In past cases, the internship has counted for college credit. We are willing to work with your college to make it count for credit.

This is an unpaid internship, but in some cases FPM is able to cover some expenses during the course of the internship.

There may, at times, be a part-time position at FPM which may be open to those who participate and complete the FPM Internship Program. It should not be assumed that completing the program in any way guarantees an automatic paid position with FPM.
