Body

The White House Internship Program is a public service leadership program that provides a unique opportunity to gain valuable professional experience and build leadership skills. This hands-on program is designed to mentor and cultivate today’s young leaders, strengthen their understanding of the Executive Office, and prepare them for future public service opportunities.

Last fall Joshua applied to participate in this program where candidates are required to complete a lengthy application and supply two letters of recommendation. For the spring semester, the program received approximately 12,000 applications and Joshua was one of 94 students selected for the program.
