Summer program prepares students for careers in public service
WASHINGTON — The Congressional Black Caucus Foundation, Incorporated (CBCF) today honors the 41 students who participated in the 2014 Summer Congressional Intern Program. The summer internship program concludes today, July 25. These college students set out on a quest to develop themselves as leaders and learn about careers in public service.
Selected students participated in a nine-week summer program that began in May to gain hands-on experience navigating the legislative process and working on public policy. The interns worked in Congressional Black Caucus member offices and participated in professional development events, including a mock congressional session, leadership forums and speed networking with corporate and business leaders.
