The White House Initiative on Educational Excellence for African Americans is seeking interns for its Summer 2018 Internships.
The White House Initiative’s Year-round Internship Program provides current 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. Responsibilities include, but are not limited to:
In addition, opportunities for developmental growth are encouraged, such as interviewing senior Department officials and officials from external organizations, and attending internal/external presentations and briefings related to African American education. Duties also will vary slightly for students pursuing terminal degrees such as Ph.D. or Ed.D. candidates.
Throughout the course of their internship, students will have the opportunity to attend and potentially 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.
