Florida House Interns
Last year six students interested in the operation of a nonprofit organization including event management, hospitality, education, marketing, communications and social media, technology and government interned at Florida House. Not only did they take on projects specifically designed for their strengths and interests, they welcomed guests, gave tours of Florida House, completed administrative work, and organized meetings and events. All spent two days a week in Congressional offices, with event vendors, or other professional offices to broaden their Washington, DC experience.
Six students with ties to Florida have been invited to participate in an eight-week session beginning in June. A stipend of $1,000 is paid to each student to help them offset expenses. Housing is not provided but Florida House assists in making recommendations for finding accommodations. Space is limited and positions are competitive.
Florida House is a nonprofit organization and generous Floridians and Trustees make this program possible. Your donation of $1,000 enables these young Floridians to more ably afford their eight-week stay in Washington, helps us expand the program to Spring and Fall, and gives students an experience that will help them jump start their career.
From a Summer, 2019 Intern:
“I have accepted a job with Deloitte Federal Consulting in DC, and the intern experience shifted my career choice dramatically! During my interview process with Deloitte, I was able to really leverage my first hand experience with interacting with policy and lawmakers. I learned quickly that I am a problem solver and personally am more passionate about the policy, not the politics, of the lawmaking process. I am beyond thrilled to be able to combine my passion for policy with my business school background to help serve and solve problems for the US Federal Agencies!”
