Summer Internship Opportunities

A recent Homeschooling Through High School email newsletter covered the topic of summer opportunities for high schoolers.  We later received an email from a staff member of a congressman asking us to let people know that local congressional offices are often looking for high school students to work as interns in their offices during the summer.  High school elective credits can be earned (depending on the hours worked) while your teen learns valuable information about the governmental and political processes.  Work done in the official office is not connected to campaigning.  It may be worth a phone call to your state or federal congressional office to see what opportunities are available to your teen this summer – or even on a limited basis throughout the school year.
