Murray stated, “It was the honor of a lifetime having the opportunity to serve the White House, the American People, and the President of the United States as a White House Intern.” 


The White House Internship Program is a public service leadership program that provides a unique opportunity to gain valuable professional experience and build leadership skills. This hands-on program is designed to mentor and cultivate today’s young leaders, strengthen their understanding of the Executive Office and prepare them for future public service opportunities.


The President, First Lady, and White House staff are committed to providing young leaders an opportunity to develop their leadership skills and serve their country through the White House Internship Program. This program was developed to provide hands-on experience and cultivate meaningful skills.


“I want to thank President Trump and the entire Administration for allowing me to play a small part in helping make this country a better place to live for every American.”


A select group of young men and women from across the country dedicate their time, talents, energy and service to better the White House and the Nation. These committed citizens become part of the White House team. The assignments given to an intern on any given day could include: conducting research, managing incoming inquiries, attending meetings, writing memos and staffing events.
