A congressional internship is a great way to learn more about the federal government, the legislative process, and everything that we do to help constituents. I’ve enjoyed working with the many bright young men and women who have interned in our offices. Our interns have done great work to help me represent and serve my employers – the 705,000 residents of Pennsylvania’s Twelfth Congressional District. - Keith
