Opportunities

White House Internship Program, Summer 2012 program, DC
Please visit http://www.whitehouse.gov/internships for detailed information about the program, the application process, a timeline with deadlines, and the departments that participate in the program.

"This select group of young men and women from across the country dedicate their time, talents, energy, and service to better the White House, the community, and the nation. These committed citizens become a part of the White House team. The assignments given to an intern on any given day could include conducting research, managing incoming inquiries, attending meetings, and writing memos. While the interns’ individual responsibilities and tasks vary, they are united through weekly events and, most importantly, through service. Interns participate in a long-term service project to help the surrounding community. This is a great opportunity to promote leadership and a way to learn about their fellow intern class. Each week, interns come together for a speaker series with senior staff members and participate in off-site field trips around D.C."
