Washington DC Intern Program

Outstanding college-age 4-H members or former 4-H members are encouraged to apply for the Georgia 4-H Washington Intern position in the office of U.S. Senator Johnny Isaakson, continuing a long tradition of a Georgia 4-H intern serving Georgia’s senior senator.

Each student will have an opportunity to experience the inner workings of the federal government; increase their knowledge and understanding of the legislative process; expand their network of leader and career contacts; refine their communication skills; and, represent Georgia 4-H in a national setting.

It is preferred that applicants for the internship are juniors or seniors in college during the time they are in Washington, but sophomores will also be considered. Two interns per year are selected to serve during Fall and Spring semesters, which most consider to be a superior experience to a summer internship. Every effort will be made to assign interns to an area which is commensurate with their educational background, goals and interests as well as the needs of the Senator’s office in Washington.

Applicants should complete the application found at the link below and be prepared to provide the required documents listed below if they are contacted by the State 4-H Office to move forward in the selection process. Applicants should expect to complete the process up to a year in advance of the semester they would like to serve in Washington.
