Intern with the Illinois Opportunity Project
This year presents an incredible opportunity for Illinoisans to change the direction of state government. It is important that our organizers begin their involvement in the community as early as possible.
We are in search of a team of motivated liberty-minded individuals to conduct outreach, coordinate volunteers, and create content. If you are interested in a career in free market advocacy, this is your first step. Opportunities for paid positions may be available in late summer for those who distinguish themselves.
The Illinois Opportunity Project believes that empowering and organizing people around our shared values is the most impactful way to change our state and strengthen our communities. We use the neighborhood team model and relational organizing to empower individuals to change their neighborhoods and advance free-market principles.
