“Interning for Congressman Perry has truly given me a unique experience that no class can give you about the inter-workings of the federal government. The time I gave in both the Gettysburg district office and D.C. office allowed me to see sides of public service in a whole different light that makes me proud to pursue a career for the American government. This experience that the 4th Congressional District Internship Association has provided for me was an enlightening experience that I will never forget.”

-Emily Newman, 2014 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.

The 4th Congressional District Internship Association is a 501(c)3 non-profit organization. Donations are tax deductible.*
