“Participating in the 4th Congressional District Internship Program has provided me with an unparalleled opportunity to gain once in a lifetime experience working in the federal government. Unlike many internships offered to work in Congress, this internship allowed me to work in Washington, DC as well as the in the local district offices so that I was able to obtain a much deeper understanding of how a congressional office operates on a daily basis. The most rewarding aspect of this internship was being able to solve the complex issues constituents have experienced with federal agencies - and knowing that I have truly have been able to make a difference in someone’s life.”

-Jacob Taylor, 2016 Summer Intern

History:

The 4th Congressional District Internship Association (formerly the 19th District Internship Association) was created in 1977 as a community involvement, good government initiative to provide financial sponsorship for college students from the 4th Congressional District of Pennsylvania to work in the offices of our Congressman each summer. Internships give students a chance to be a part of government in action, with opportunities to attend hearings, draft response to constituent letters and research issues, as well as to provide staff support services.

Since its inception in 1977, the internship program has been extremely successful in annually sending a significant number of enthusiastic students to Washington for a first-class, first-hand experience with their government.

To support the program, Association members are invited to an annual reception in the 4th District to introduce the interns, new Association members, and guests to the current Association members. Occasionally the Association also organizes a bus trip to Washington for an exciting mix of business and pleasure. Association members and guests are invited to attend at their own expense.

The 4th Congressional District of Pennsylvania is comprised of Adams and York counties and parts of Cumberland and Dauphin counties. The 4th Congressional District Internship Association is not supported by the U.S. House of Representatives.
