Description

The Office of State Sen. Melissa Agard (D-Madison) is now accepting applications for our Spring 2022 internship. Interns will begin mid-January.

Senator Agard’s internship program provides valuable civic experience and unparalleled insight into the inner workings of state government. Senator Agard’s internships are for the duration of one semester with the potential to extend upon completion. Interns in Senator Agard’s office will receive hands-on training and experience with the Wisconsin State Legislature, leaving our office with practical knowledge and skills in policy and legal research, communications and media, casework, and constituent services.

Our internship program is a synthesis of everything we do in our office. General interns do everything from conducting policy research and analysis, to providing constituent services, to event planning and attendance.

– Fully legalizing marijuana for medicinal & recreational use
– $15 minimum wage & restoring workers’ rights
