White House Internship Program for Spring 2013 – Deadline Sepember 23, 2012

As White House Interns, 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. While their tasks vary by department, all interns are united through weekly events including a weekly speaker series with senior staff members, off-site field trips, and mentorship opportunities.  Most importantly, the internship experience includes an emphasis on service and interns participate in regularly scheduled service projects at schools and non-profit organizations in Washington, D.C.  I want to encourage young leaders in Memphis to apply for this once-in-a-lifetime opportunity.  Visit http://www.whitehouse.gov/about/internships to learn more about how to apply for this competitive program by the deadline, which is September 23.  And if you’d like to intern in my Memphis office please contact Beanie Self at  beanie.self@mail.house.gov. If you’d like to intern in my D.C. office, please contact William Connor at William.Connor@mail.house.gov
