Sign-up – Congressional Internship Program for Individuals with Intellectual Disabilities


Dear Colleague:

I am writing to let you know about an exciting opportunity to participate in a program for students with varying intellectual disabilities (ID) – the Congressional Internship Program for Individuals with Intellectual Disabilities. The program, which started
in 2010, gives students with ID the exciting educational and enrichment opportunities typically afforded to congressional interns here in our nation’s capital.

The Fall Program will be a 12-week internship that runs from Monday, September 11, 2017, through Friday, December 8, 2017. Each participating office will be asked to host a student for one two-hour session each week.  During the weekly two-hour session, the
interns will work with their congressional office, as well as an outside aide specifically trained to assist the student, to complete various office tasks as assigned.

Please follow this link to
sign up
. The deadline to sign-up is September 5.

If your office is interested in participating in the 2017 Fall Program, please have your staff contact Alyssa Hinman with the Committee on House Administration at 5-8281, or via email at
