Funding a paid internship for a young Lib Dem activist to learn campaigns & communications skills within a national campaigning organisation
About the project
ALDC supports the development of young people's campaigning and professional experience, offering internships and apprenticeships at our Manchester HQ. We'd like to support a new Campaigns and Communications Intern, giving someone the chance to learn new campaigning techniques and building up a solid knowledge of professional communications.
We asked our previous Campaigns and Communications Intern, Ellie Hudspith, to give us a few words on what the opportunity of an ALDC internship meant for her:
"My internship at ALDC was a fantastic opportunity to work with other Liberal Democrats, and gain skills from experienced campaigners. It's a unique chance to work outside of London but still be involved with the party nationally. Getting to attend party conferences and training events allows you to meet other campaigners from across the country, and also take advantage of training sessions ran by prominent Lib Dems.
Working at ALDC gave me the chance to get involved with the day to day running of a non-profit organisation, while also allowing me to continue campaigning for a cause close to my heart."
We'd like to ask for our members, supporters, and well-wishers to make a contribution towards a new internship, to help us put this scheme on a sustainable and permanent basis.
