Volunteer at Left Forum

 Registration is closed for this event

Each year Left Forum grows bigger, with 600 speakers on 200 panels, and over 30 events happening concurrently any one time. This year will be quite engaging for interns and volunteers, providing them with unique experiences and valuable training in a politically and intellectually charged milieu both during the organizational phase and at the conference itself. Sign up below if you would like to volunteer, and we will be in touch with you soon.

Left Forum provides intern and volunteer opportunities to:

  • Hone media and communications skills in projects to develop pre-conference coverage, and on  site interviews and media presence
  • Reach out, talk to, and involve students, community organizations,  social movement organizers and others in developing panels, events or conference turnout
  • Help manage an event by working with progressive publishers and organizations in one of the largest yearly Left book and organization fairs in the country
  • Develop online and promotional graphic design  (one's work will be seen by thousands of people)* - Work with videographers in editing, producing and promoting conference clips, and recording the actual conference events
  • Work on Left Forum website and database systems; learn the infrastructure-building components of large organizing processes
  • Help with event planning for conference operations
  • Learn editorial skills: help produce and edit the program guide and other promotional literature
  • Join the fundraising/development team
