At Vot-ER, we envision healthy communities powered by an inclusive democracy. We are working to exponentially scale voter access within America’s healthcare system. We provide the tools, training, and community to support a growing movement that amplifies the voices of patients, families, & healthcare professionals in America’s democracy.
As an organization with a vision focused on an inclusive American democracy, we aim to reflect that standard in our own organization as well. Vot-ER has a strong commitment to diversity and especially encourages people who are historically underrepresented in healthcare and civic engagement to apply.
Undergraduate Internship [Remote – Fall 2021]
Launched in 2020, Vot-ER has scaled rapidly last year, now with 25,000 participating healthcare providers, over 300 hospitals, and a range of other partners. Now, the context we face is completely different. Our work this year will lay the groundwork for what Vot-ER looks like for years to come.
Vot-ER has a robust internship program that helps undergraduates meet leaders in the fields of democracy and health, work with strong mentors, and build new skills. Note that this is a remote internship for undergraduate students.
