"I learned more in my few months with the Governor’s Office than in any one year in a classroom, and I felt important and useful to office staff as well as constituents. I have been lucky enough to spend the past few months seeing the good that government can do— I will take these lessons with me and I will never forget this experience…I am a better person for having participated in this program."

I learned a lot from my time at the Governor’s Office—not only about the different ways things work at a state government level, but also about how to work as a team player in an office environment. This internship exceeded all my expectations! You will grow as an employee, but also as a person as a whole.”

"I learned more here than I ever expected, and grew as a professional and as a person. This is the best internship I have had so far—I feel privileged to have been a part of this team."

"This experience is something that can change your entire life. Being around individuals—many of them quite young—who are so excited about public service and government is refreshing and energizing. The people you work with will be so knowledgeable and intelligent that you’ll feel yourself gleaning so much understanding about the way government works from the very place that our state government originates. There’s no better place to intern if you’re interested in government--honestly."

For anyone interested in government, politics, or any type of public affairs, I would highly recommend this program. I could not have imagined spending my summer in a more productive or positive way. The program allows you to meet countless interesting people along with giving you a terrific crash course in the world of state government."

"The Governor’s Internship Program is a great opportunity for current students…and was an overwhelming experience.  This program took me away from my comfort zone and allowed me to explore how our government operates.  I am grateful I made this decision to apply and encourage others to do the same."
