Internship – The White House

August 17, 2010

The White House Internship Program provides a unique opportunity to gain valuable professional experience and build leadership skills. This hands-on program is designed to mentor and cultivate today’s young leaders, strengthen their understanding of the Executive Office and prepare them for future public service opportunities.

The application period for the Spring 2011 program is now open. Applicants have until October 3, 2010 to apply for a Spring 2011 White House Internship.

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.  In addition, during the summer a few interns are chosen as mentors for the D.C. Scholars.
