“The 4th Congressional District Internship Association has provided me with both unique and rewarding experiences in both the Washington, D.C. office and the Wormleysburg office. While in D.C., I was able to take part in researching policy and drafting official letters to constituents. I was also able to attend hearings and meetings with Congressman Perry’s staff. While in the Wormleysburg office, I learned how important the constituents are to our district by helping with casework and touring local businesses. Both offices provided me with different but important lessons on how a congressional office runs. This has been an invaluable experience, and I am extremely grateful for this opportunity.”

-Emma Crisci, 2013 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.
