CPL's New Leaders Program helps diverse college students and other young leaders get paid internships and entry-level positions at progressive organizations in order to help jump-start life-long careers in progressive politics.
We work to change the face of tomorrow’s political leadership by connecting young people of color, LGBT youth, and women to paid internships and entry-level positions with progressive organizations. In addition to matching you with a paid position, CPL provides skills training, mentorship
