Giving Back: The White House Internship Program

Christian Peele  January 03, 2013


Ed. note: The application for the Summer 2013 White House Internship Program is now open. This blog post introduces readers to Simon Boehme, a former intern who worked in the Office of Management and Administration in the summer of 2011. When asked about his internship experience, Simon writes:


When people ask about my time as a White House intern, a smile emerges before I say anything at all. After a rush of nostalgia, I often refer to the extraordinary opportunities and memories forged throughout my time as an intern. But, what resonates most, when reflecting on my internship experience, is the importance of always giving back.


Inspired by the President and the First Family’s commitment to helping others and making America stronger, White House interns play an integral role in furthering this mission. In addition to the opportunity to work in one of 16 different departments in the White House, interns also participate in community service projects throughout Washington, D.C. For example, within the first week of my internship, my fellow interns and I helped clean a local park, and over the course of the term, our service expanded to serving at food banks, supporting the elderly and tutoring schoolchildren.

As 2012 has now drawn to a close, the White House has compiled some of our top tweets of the year. This year, the @WhiteHouse twitter account surpassed three million followers, and Twitter has become an increasingly important tool for the White House to engage with citizens and provide updates from the Obama Administration. From live-tweeting the State of the Union address in January to President Obama’s twitter Q&A on #My2k in December, 2012 was a year filled with nearly 3,000 tweets, more than 50 sessions of White House Office Hours and tweetups that invite our followers on twitter to attend in-person events.


Take a look at our top tweets below, or on Storify, and be sure tofollow the White House on Twitter for news and updates in the New Year.





White House Office Hours: Agreement to Extend Middle Class Tax Cuts

By Kori Schulman  January 03, 2013 The White House Blog


This week, President Obama signed the American Taxpayer Relief Act of 2012 into law. That means middle-class families won’t see an increase in their income tax rates, and the fiscal cliff has been avoided.


Do you have questions about the deal and how it will impact you? Brian Deese, Deputy Director of the National Economic Council, will be on hand to answer your questions during a session of White House Office Hours on Twitter with Yahoo! Finance.


Join us on Friday, January 4th at 11:30 a.m. ET for a live Twitter Q&A. Here’s how it works:


  • Ask your questions now and during the chat with the hashtag#fiscalcliff411



  • If you miss the Q&A, the full session will be posted on WhiteHouse.gov

Welcome to the West Wing Week, your guide to everything that’s happening at 1600 Pennsylvania Ave. This week, the President spent several days in talks with Congressional leaders in an ultimately successful effort to reach a bipartisan compromise around the central promise of the president’s re-election campaign: preventing an income tax increase on middle class families while asking the wealthiest 2 percent of Americans to pay more to help deal with our deficit. Also, White House staffers shared some of their New Year’s resolutions.
