“This is a great opportunity for students to learn about our government and how it works,” said Director of the WBLC, John Russ. “If you are interested in issues that impact Idaho and its citizens, this is an opportunity to learn how to make a difference on those issues. An internship provides students the opportunity to network with other influential people that may develop into lifelong relationships. Regardless of you field of study, this is a great once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to learn from others. You never know who or how others can help until you take the steps to experience something different.”
