Volunteer Positions

Have some time on your hands after the kids are tucked in bed (or, you know, whatever)? Do you have a dependable git-er-done attitude, a zippy internet connection, a passion for our mission, one or more of the skills listed at left, and no particular desire to make money? Boy-howdy are you ever our kind of person! Drop us a line at admin@insight-us.org (subject line: "Volunteer"). Please include your résumé or CV, plus a note telling us who you really are. Odds are we'll be all over you like a cheap suit.

Internships

You're a digitally adept and quantitative college or graduate school student (or maybe a semi-quant law or journalism student) who shares a passion for our mission and yearns for the most mind-numbingly tedious unpaid internship you'll ever love. We're the folks who will help you learn a thing or two about real-world data-driven activism, and will probably write you a killer recommendation after you're done here. Please drop us a line at admin@insight-us.org (subject line: "Intern"). Please include your résumé or CV, a copy of your transcript, plus a note telling us who you really are. Also indicate the dates through which you would be available for service. Please note that while it is not an absolute requirement, we have some preference for interns who live in the Triangle region of North Carolina, because we believe that at least some face-time with us is probably in your best interest, pedagogically speaking.
