CHCI Interns learn firsthand about how the legislative system works, spending four days each week (Monday–Thursday) working on Capitol Hill. 

The purpose of the Congressional Internship Program (CIP) is to expose young Latinos to the legislative process and to strengthen their professional and leadership skills, ultimately promoting the presence of Latinos on Capitol Hill and in Federal Agencies.

During CHCI’s paid summer and semester internships, promising Latino undergraduate students experience what it’s like to work in a congressional office or federal agency, while participating in weekly professional and leadership development and civic engagement through community service.
