Our Summer Internship Program offers the opportunity for college students and young professionals to learn firsthand how our government and legislative process operates. Applicable candidates will cover a range of responsibilities vital to the success of a Congressional office such as constituent input, legislative writing, policy briefings/hearings, and more. Although unpaid, these internships offer a once in a lifetime opportunity and the possibility of earning college credit. Carlton Norwood, the Intern Coordinator for Congressman Allen, is available to assist with any questions or concerns from interested candidates. Carlton can be reached by phone at (202)-225-2823 or by email at Carlton.Norwood@mail.house.gov.

Congressman Allen stated, “Interning in a congressional office offers a unique opportunity to gain insight into the legislative process and how a congressional office operates. Interns play an integral part in carrying out the functions of our day-to-day operations. We practice a bottom-up approach to empower others to be the best that they can be and gain experience that will help them in the future. My staff and I look forward to welcoming students to Washington D.C. and to Team Allen.”
