TOPEKA—The Speaker Pro Tem’s office is currently accepting applications for student internships for the 2012 Legislative Session.
The internship will run from January to May. The time commitment is flexible based on the schedule of the student but we recommend 20 hours a week.
The goal of the internship is to learn about the legislative process.
Interns will be tasked with several responsibilities including research of bills, monitoring House and Senate committees, and constituent communication as well as monitoring action of both the House and the Senate. The internship is not paid but travel expenses will be reimbursed.
“This is a great opportunity for students to get involved in the legislative process and learn how government works, said Speaker Pro Tem. Jene Vickrey. Many students who have taken part in this program have gained the skills necessary for other jobs in the Legislature as well as the private sector. It is a truly unique experience to learn firsthand how laws are made and the ways government affects your life. I encourage all students who can make the time commitment to apply.”
