The White House Initiative’s Year-round Internship Program offers an exciting experience for undergraduate and graduate students who are interested in improving education outcomes for African Americans. This is an unpaid internship working for the U.S. Department of Education in Washington, D.C.

This internship gives students an opportunity to learn about the White House Initiative on Educational Excellence for African Americans. This initiative was launched by President Obama in July of 2012 as an effort to improve educational opportunities for African American students and increase overall rates for students completing college.

Interns will be involved in researching facts on African American education, working on the Initiative’s web site and responding to emails, learning about local and national African American organizations and federal agencies, planning Initiative events, maintaining media archives, and participating in staff meetings and planning sessions about the Initiative.

Students will be at the heart of the President’s Initiative program and have the opportunity to attend and be part of the planning process for meetings, briefings and other special events on the Hill, at the White House and in other federal agencies. Other duties may be included for graduate students and Ph.D. candidates.

Students must have good verbal and written communications skills, an excellent academic record, the ability to complete tasks on time and be comfortable working both independently and on teams. Internships are available in summer, fall, winter and spring.
