Opportunities for Third District youth
As I travel the Third District and visit our schools, I never cease to be amazed at the intelligence and drive of our students. Their informed curiosity over key issues facing our country has left a particularly strong impression on me this summer and it is this curiosity I seek to nurture through my outreach efforts.
College students interested in gaining firsthand experience in the legislative process are invited to apply for an internship with one of my offices during the spring, summer, or fall. Interns are provided the opportunity to assist with constituent services, attend events, and work side-by-side with my staff on policy issues.
Another way I interact regularly with students is through the Third District Youth Advisory Council, which is open to high school juniors and seniors. Through in-person meetings, Facebook forums, and conference calls, I meet with this group throughout the school year to discuss the matters they find most important. Applications for the 2019-2020 school year will open in the spring.
