The White House is currently looking for African-American students for its 2013 White House Initiative’s Year-round Internship Program.
Open to undergraduate and graduate students, the program provides students with an opportunity to learn about African-American-focused education policy, communications and outreach at the U.S. Department of Education in Washington, D.C.
Interns will be responsible for collecting and compiling research and data on African- American education, institutions and communities, as well as performing data entry and managing the office database.
Interns will also greet and escort visitors to meetings and participate in strategic planning and staff meetings and other department policy briefings and meetings relevant to the work of the initiative. Those interested in interning for the White house should also be prepared to respond to constituent inquiries verbally or in writing.
During the internships, students will have the opportunity to attend and possibly lead in the planning and management of meetings, briefings and other special events on the Hill, at the White House and in other federal agencies.
