VILLA PARK, Ill. – To provide an opportunity for young people interested in public service to gain experience in government, state Rep. Deb Conroy, D-Villa Park, is encouraging local students to apply for a summer internship at her Villa Park office.
“Over the years, our summer interns have provided crucial support to the 46th District office and gained invaluable skills firsthand learning about the legislative process,” Conroy said. “This is a great opportunity for students to develop communication and leadership skills while building relationships with local leaders and organizers who are doing great work in our community.”
Conroy is seeking motivated high school sophomore and juniors who are able to work 5-10 hours a week from mid-June until mid-August. Residents of the 46th District are preferred, and a method of transportation to the district office is necessary. Applicants must send their resumes to RepDebConroy@gmail.com by May 20, 2019.
Duties in Conroy’s office will include direct communication with constituents and participation in data projects. Additionally, interns will work as a team to develop a community service program that provides residents with information about the implications of vaping and electronic cigarette use.
“Interning in my office is a great way to give back to our community while gaining valuable experience for your future,” Conroy said. “I’m looking forward to working with the bright, passionate students who apply for this summer program.”
