As the summer comes to an end, so does another chapter of phenomenal interns with us here at AAI. From the beginning of June to mid-August, our summer interns have worked tirelessly in the areas of government relations, research, communications and programming. From attending hearings on Capitol Hill, assisting in organizing briefings and touring government landmarks like the Department of State and White House; our interns got hands on experience on the ins and outs of Washington, DC.
Not only did our interns gain valuable skills during their time here at AAI, they were able to put those skills into action via various pieces that they wrote for the AAI blog, research done on issues affecting the Arab American community, during meetings with various government officials and through their interactions with guest speakers at the Brown Bag lunch series. Though their time with us has come to an end, they have become part of an extended alumni family of past interns who have now gone on to become contributing members of society in all areas of government, the non-profit sector, humanitarian organizations and much more.
