Spring Internship The interns will have an opportunity to learn about the legislative process and the federal government by working closely with my legislative and communications staff. While on Capitol Hill, interns complete a variety of tasks including corresponding with constituents, conducting Congressional Capitol tours, drafting legislative items and attending briefings. Interns get a wonderful opportunity to see politics from a very personal level. The program was established to provide students an in-depth look at the American political process by learning how various Washington DC entities formulate public policy and how other governmental agencies interact with that process. The program's objective is to provide students with insights into the policy-making process and public life by working in governmental, nonprofit and private sector placement in the nation's capital. Furthermore, the internship offers students real world experiences where they can apply their classroom learning. During the internship, students will refine their career interests, develop leadership skills and gain a deeper understanding of American politics.
