Congressional Internship Program

The CHCI Congressional Internship Program provides Latino college students with work placement on Capitol Hill four days a week, where they gain substantive work and networking experience. Interns also participate in once-a-week educational programs and leadership training at CHCI headquarters, where they meet with national public- and private-sector leaders and engage in national policy discussions. This comprehensive approach to leadership preparation provides unmatched professional and learning opportunities. Promising Latino undergraduates from across the country are selected for participation in this prestigious program.

CHCI also offers corporate sponsors the opportunity to offer company-based internships following students’ successful completion of CHCI’s Congressional Internship Program.

CHCI’s Graduate Fellowship Program helps increase the number of Latino leaders in policy areas in which they are traditionally underrepresented. It provides exceptional Latino college graduates and young Latino professionals from across the country unparalleled opportunity for professional experience in the public policy arenas of education, health, housing, international affairs, law, and the STEM fields (science, technology, engineering, and mathematics). It also offers a chance to participate in CHCI's nationally acclaimed leadership development training program, including research and publication of a public policy paper about a public policy issue in their chosen field. These policy papers are presented an audience of key public- and private-sector leaders on Capitol Hill each spring.

CHCI also offers corporate sponsors the opportunity to offer company-based fellowships following students’ successful completion of CHCI’s Graduate Fellowship Program.

This intensive work experience is enhanced by weekly leadership training sessions at CHCI headquarters where they engage with national leaders around substantive public policy issues. Exposure to the wealth of information, contacts, and political activity in Washington D.C. gives fellows a unique opportunity to pursue their public policy career goals.

The mission of the CHCI Alumni Association (CHCI-AA) is to support CHCI in developing the next generation of Latino leaders through lifelong alumni engagement and leadership advancement. CHCI envisions alumni actively engaged in developing Latino leaders, involved civically in their communities, supporting CHCI’s programs through volunteerism and philanthropy, and continually developing their own professional and leadership skills. The CHCI-AA is one of the fastest growing networks of Latino professionals in the country and highly accomplished alumni have successfully continued their journey beyond CHCI into the workforce as powerful leaders in the public, private and nonprofit sectors. It promotes active invisible leadership in the community, while providing members with increased opportunities for professional development, networking and, most importantly, opportunities to mentor our Latino youth. By generously giving of their time, talent and passion, CHCI alumni remain connected to each other and to CHCI well after their programs end.
