Take the Next Generation of Public Servants to New Heights!

College to Congress is a pipeline for careers in public service for highly qualified, talented students. Congressional internships are traditionally unpaid, and students with limited financial resources often can’t afford the high living expenses in Washington, D.C. College to Congress not only funds housing, flights, food, clothing and transportation, but also provides training and support to create a pathway for students to begin their careers on Capitol Hill.

The fresh perspectives and life experiences of our students – enhanced by our bipartisan mentorship program and networking opportunities – are building the foundation for a more collaborative and effective government. By empowering the next generation of passionate and diverse young leaders to kick-start their careers in public service, we get closer to creating a Congress that is reflective of the beautiful diversity in America.

The Miles on a Mission campaign will help us achieve this vision by supporting our students, alumni and recruitment program. With the miles raised, we can fly our students from their hometowns to Washington, D.C., and back home afterward. As our alumni are interviewing for and securing full-time jobs after college, we can continue to support them by covering their flights to D.C. Lastly, College to Congress focuses its recruiting efforts on students from traditionally underrepresented backgrounds. This can include, but is not limited to, DACA students, low-income students and students from rural areas. Support in the form of a flight can be the deciding factor for many students who possess the passion, but not the means.

About us

The mission of College to Congress is to create a more inclusive and effective Congress by empowering the next generation of public servants who reflect the people they serve. We are continuing to achieve this goal through financial support, professional development and job placement assistance for low-income, rural and underrepresented students from across the nation.
