Intern for WACH

We offer a summer internship program for college and high school students

During our June-August program, students will gain in-depth knowledge of international, national, and local affairs. They will also organize the annual International Young Leaders Conference.

Hours are flexible and include visits to area museums, the State Capitol and other locations. 

This program is run jointly with PennLive and Temple University Harrisburg. With PennLive the students have the opportunity to write a published op-ed or letter to the editor. Temple University Harrisburg collaborates on our two-week understanding government segment where we bring in PA legislators, representatives from the Attorney General’s office, and other political specialists.

My favorite experience was having the chance to speak with the Governor and asking him pressing questions that a lot of people in our generation would like answers to. That is an opportunity that many people will never have.
