Congresswoman Barragán takes pride in offering internship opportunities available in both San Pedro and Washington D.C. throughout the year on a rolling basis. Top of Form

Interns in the district and Washington D.C. obtain priceless first-hand experience working for Congress. Interns routinely interact with constituents, attend events, and assist staff in day-to-day operations.  By working with full-time staff, our interns gain a comprehensive knowledge of Capitol Hill, as well as valuable office experience.  We understand how demanding a student’s life can be, so we can be flexible to accommodate class schedules.

During your time in our Washington D.C office, you will conduct legislative research, attend committee hearings, interact with constituents, run errands around the hill, and learn the day-to-day operations of a Congressional office.  Bottom of Form

During your time in our San Pedro office, you will interact with constituents, conduct research, attend community events, and assist on special projects relevant to the district.

Although internships in Washington D.C and the district are unpaid, students gain invaluable work experience. I encourage you to explore your interest in government by interning in one of our offices. Interested students should fill out the Internship Application Form. If you have any questions or concerns, please contact my intern coordinator at
