Internships run throughout the fall, spring or summer semesters for College students. Although all internships in all offices are unpaid, students gain invaluable work experience. The hours are flexible to accommodate students’ hectic course schedules. In the Washington DC office, interns learn about the legislative process and are given assignments with a significant amount of responsibility and challenges such as researching legislation for the member and legislative staff, attending hearings and briefings. Interns will also be asked to part-take on administrative responsibilities such as answering phones, running errands, and answer constituent letters on various issues. Applications are accepted on a rolling basis.
