August 27, 2012, Washington, D.C. – The Public Affairs Alliance of Iranian Americans (PAAIA) encourages Iranian American college students and recent graduates interested in public service to apply for a White House Internship. The White House is now accepting applications for the Spring 2013 Internship Program.
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.
