Congressional Leadership Fund Internship

The Congressional Leadership Fund is an organization based out of D.C. dedicated to supporting Republican candidates for the U.S. House of Representatives is looking for interns in the area. This internship is open to local students interested in politics. We are very excited to rollout this program and provide young adults a chance to get involved in the extraordinary political processes of our country.

With so many topics headlining today’s political conversation, it’s critical for young adults to have their voices heard.  This is one of the main goals of our internship program and past interns have found the program to be particularly helpful in enhancing their resumes for graduate school and job applications.  This internship could also be valuable in fulfilling a community service or internship requirement for students.

If you have any questions, please contact Will Betts at WBetts@theclf.org or 412-613-8118 or see the website at http://www.congressionalleadershipfund.org/internships/
