Written by White House on 04 March 2009.

white house internshipThe White House Internship Program provides a unique opportunity to gain job experience and an inside look at the life of White House staff while building leadership skills.  This hands-on program is designed to mentor and cultivate today’s young leaders, strengthening their understanding of future public service possibilities.

In addition to normal office duties, interns will supplement their learning experience by attending a weekly lecture series hosted by senior White House staff, help at White House social events, and volunteer in community service projects.

"This program will mentor and cultivate young leaders of today and tomorrow and I'm proud that they will have this opportunity to serve," said President Obama. "I look forward to working with those that are selected to participate and I want to commend all who apply for their desire to help through public service to forge a brighter future for our country."   

White House Internships are full-time unpaid positions and participants are responsible for arranging their own transportation and housing for the duration of the program.
