The Congressional Black Caucus Foundation is offering several internship programs for spring 2023 and applications are due by Wednesday, Delegate to Congress Stacey Plaskett announced Monday.

“These programs provide an incredible opportunity for young black professionals and college students to gain valuable work experience and knowledge that will foster important professional relationships and create avenues to success,” Plaskett said in a press release announcing Wednesday’s deadline.

“Through these internships, individuals will be provided guidance and instruction from skilled experts about the process, development, and implementation of national policies from Capitol Hill to federal field offices,” said Plaskett.  

Each internship is designed to meet the unique needs of different career focus areas, according to the release. For example, the State Farm Communications program focuses  on building a comprehensive skill set in press and media relations on Capitol Hill, it said. The Emerging Leaders Internship Program, sponsored by Walmart, seeks to educate young leaders who are interested in fostering meaningful and lasting change in both Washington, D.C., and their local communities.

Lastly, the Pathways to C-Suite Program pairs participants with high-level executives from the private sector who provide knowledge on the development of public policy and corporate America, the release stated. 

The application deadline is Wednesday. “As the date rapidly approaches, I encourage all interested to take advantage of these opportunities and apply today,” said Plaskett.
