The Idaho Democratic Party is committed to training young people and furthering their careers in Idaho politics.


The IDP internship program is designed to give politically inclined students a well-rounded political experience. We at the IDP are committed to partnering with all of our interns to ensure they make the connections they need to be successful in any of the following areas:
