Two college students from Hawaii have been chosen to participate in the White House Internship Program.
It was announced Friday that Gregory Joseph II of Kailua and Luke Potter of Waimea, Hawaii Island, will be part of a large group of students from around the country who will intern at one of the White House’s departments in the spring.
Joseph is attending American University in Washington, D.C., and Potter is going to Duke University in North Carolina.
The mission of the program is to make the White House accessible to future leaders around the nation and to prepare those devoted to public service for future leadership opportunities.
Interns work in one of several White House departments, including the Domestic Policy Council, the National Economic Council, the Office of Cabinet Affairs, the Office of Communications, the Office of Digital Strategy, the Office of the First Lady, the Office of Legislative Affairs, the Office of Management and Administration, the Office of Political Strategy and Outreach, the Office of Presidential Correspondence, the Presidential Personnel Office, the Office of Public Engagement and Intergovernmental Affairs, the Office of Scheduling and Advance, the Office of the Vice President, the Office of the White House Counsel, and the President’s Commission on White House Fellowships.
