Virtual Intern Opportunity With US Government for College-Level Students

Youth Engaged 4 Change: Looking for Opportunities to Build Skills? Apply for the Virtual Student Federal Service!

The Virtual Student Federal Service (VSFS) is an eight-month remote internship program for U.S. citizen students, college-level and above, who would like to make a real difference in the work of the U.S. government. Virtual interns work only on unclassified projects. They report to their mentors at the Department of State and other federal government agencies in the U.S. and around the world by email, phone, or video chat. VSFS collaborates with more than 40 federal agencies across government on this program, including many opportunities from the Partners of the Interagency Working Group on Youth Programs! VSFS supervisors review applications between August 1-31 and may contact VSFS candidates for a virtual interview. As part of the interview, candidates may be asked to show examples of their expertise and work. All candidates will hear by early September if they have been offered a position. Selected eInterns work on their projects for 10 hours per week from September through May. Some eInterns work with their academic institutions to receive course credit for their VSFS participation. The federal Interagency Working Group on Youth Programs (IWGYP) is offering multiple opportunities for youth: Youth Engagement Consultants: Digital Communications and Social Media (4 positions available) — We are seeking Youth Engagement Consultants with an interest in communications, social media, and programs that support the well-being of youth and young adults.
