In the Washington, DC office, internships run throughout the fall, spring or summer semesters for college students. Although all internships in all offices are unpaid, students gain invaluable work experience. The hours are flexible to accommodate students' hectic course schedules, but generally run 9:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m. when Congress is in session, and 9:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. when not in session.
Interns working in the Washington, D.C. office will assist staff with tasks including processing mail and letters, leading tours of the U.S. Capitol, attending committee hearings, and helping with legislative and media efforts. As a result, interns learn about the legislative process and the many other functions of a congressional office.
Interns working in the Tucson or Sierra Vista offices will have the opportunity to help with constituent casework, events planning and set-up, outreach and other duties. Interns can serve on a part-time or full-time basis.
