Civic Tech Fellows Program
Learn more about our Summer apprenticeship program
After participating in the inaugural White House Demo Day in 2015, Phone2Action founded the Civic Technology Fund to continue developing entrepreneurial spirit and support Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM) education.
The Civic Tech Fellow Program is a STEM-based internship apprenticeship for students to gain valuable skills and experience in the field of civic technology. The Civic Tech Fellow program recruits minority, disabled, low-income, special needs, international students, and any student interested in technology innovation and civic engagement.
The apprenticeship is from June to August every year. Fellows work on a variety of projects based on interest and skills. Projects are often incorporated to our core products and have included a Live Map for engagement, automated testing, Benchmarking Tools and much more.
Fellow positions are available in every department:
- Customer Success
Throughout the Fellows program, Phone2Action hosts brown bag lunches and fireside chats to provide fellows with opportunities to learn and engage with business leaders, partners and clients.

"The Civic Tech Fellow program was an incredible experience. I definitely learned a lot in every possible way. I was pushed out of my comfort zone in so many ways, and the experience prepared me very well for my current job. I learned. I applied, and I grew. And most importantly I built a lot of relationships that could help me in the future. I would totally recommend it."
