"It's wonderful to see you all here. It makes me feel as if the reinforcements have just arrived!"
- President Ronald Reagan
1987 CWA National Convention

"President Reagan's death is a great personal loss to me – not just because of the beliefs we held in common, but because of the many ways our lives overlapped."
- Mrs. Beverly LaHaye
Founder and Chairman Concerned Women for America

In the summer of 2004, Concerned Women for America (CWA) launched a new era in our internship program. Following the passing of President Ronald Reagan in June, Mrs. LaHaye sought a fresh initiative to keep his heritage alive. And what better way to pass on his legacy than by inspiring young people with the vision that President Reagan carried — the vision that stirred hearts across America and encouraged them that, yes, we can have a better future, a free future, a future we can be glad to pass on to our children. It's for this reason and so many more that we are glad to continue the Ronald Reagan Memorial Internship Program.

Welcome to Washington, D.C.

A day in the life of a CWA intern can include trips to the Hill to meet with staffers, researching and writing about important issues, accompanying staff to media appearances, and attending exclusive events around D.C.  One day at the office teaches you more about life than any college course could.

Be prepared

You will do a lot more than filing. Ronald Reagan interns aren't your run-of-the-mill sort. We work on tough issues, and we want to teach you to tackle them. The seven core issues of CWA are sanctity of life, religious liberty, definition of the family, sexual exploitation, education, national sovereignty, and support for Israel. We're working to call America to pray and act to restore Biblical values among all citizens.

The Ronald Reagan Memorial Internship with Concerned Women for America is an experience like no other. We are the nation's largest public policy women's organization, with half a million members and a respected influence at the state, federal, and international levels. Your opportunities are boundless.

Catch the vision

Can you see it? You — being a part of the effort to restore Biblical values in public policy.

"The vision of CWA is for women and like-minded men, from all walks of life, to come together and restore the family to its traditional purpose and thereby allow each member of the family to realize their God-given potential and be more responsible citizens."

What is it?

It's work. It's play. It's life in the big city. Every hour of every day, you'll get an intense, hands-on, real-life experience that very few are fortunate enough to find. Our interns attend meetings with government officials, lobby on Capitol Hill, research compelling social issues, and have the opportunity to see their work published.

CWA's mission is to protect and promote Biblical values among all citizens — first through prayer, then education, and finally by influencing our society — thereby reversing the decline in moral values in our nation.

Summer, spring, or fall, we accept intern applications for opportunities in our national office. We add a group Bible study and Biblical worldview classes to our interns' normal work routine. So no matter when you come, you'll get an experience you'll never forget.
