Life in Washington, D.C.
For being the nation's capital, Washington, D.C. has a small city "feel" and is easy to navigate. The public transportation system, Metro (www.wmata.com), makes travel convenient and quick from points inside and outside the city.
D.C. is chock-full of free museums, American history, arts and cultural centers, restaurants and shopping—not to mention political intrigue! There's more than plenty to please the palate of just about any visitor. Check out: www.washington.org
Plus, D.C. is nestled in between Maryland and Virginia, two states that each possess charm, natural beauty, and rich U.S. history. Explore the hundreds of things to do at the state tourism sites:
Interns also enjoy a plethora of free or low-cost seminars, luncheons, conferences and other events that allow you to network with other conservatives in the movement or just meet other people in town.
"I appreciated the opportunities to attend different seminars and events on Capitol Hill. These experiences broadened my perspective and allowed me to see what is taking place on the forefront with different issues."
Not only have our interns benefited from informational meetings organized by other groups, but they've also enjoyed free outdoor movie showings on the National Mall through "Screen on the Green," hiked the Shenandoah Mountains, been welcomed in the homes of our staff, toured nearby Annapolis, Maryland, and the Naval Academy, and in many other ways, made CWA and life in Washington their own.
"Just like Nadia Comaneci in the 1976 Olympics, I would have to give this internship a PERFECT 10!! Unlike most internships, I was included in most aspects of the organization. We were given a wide range of experiences and definitely had easy access to experts in our field. Also, all areas of growth were stimulated. Most importantly, I developed great relationships with brilliant Christians, all of whom have inspired me."
We invite you to come find out just how much a semester in our nation's capital, working with CWA, has to offer. Your life will never be the same.
