The Congressional Black Caucus Foundation interns learn the inner workings of Congress, explore public service and public policy careers, discuss current events and policy initiatives. 

The Leadership Institute for Public Service prepares the next generation to take its place in community service and policy development arenas. The Leadership Institute’s primary goal is to increase the pool of black leaders in community-based programs and public service careers. The Leadership Institute offers numerous educational and leadership development programs for individuals ranging from junior high school students through young adults (generally ages 40 and under). Participants are provided with opportunities to learn the inner workings of Congress, explore public service and public policy careers, discuss current events and policy initiatives and see close up leadership at its very best by working with and learning from Congressional Black Caucus members.
