Intern at the White House for Spring or Summer 2013!

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.

“This program will mentor and cultivate young leaders of today and tomorrow and I’m proud that they will have this opportunity to serve. 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.”

— PRESIDENT BARACK OBAMA, MAY 22, 2009
