Project Description

Every April the Department of State hosts Take Your Child to Work Day. Children ages 9-15, who have at least one parent working at State, are invited to attend presentations on the wide array of activities and cultures with which the Department is involved. We are looking for education majors with a strong creative edge and who can work with individual offices to create videos, handouts, slideshows, quizzes, and other materials to engage our young audience. Possible projects include devising materials on the history of the Department of State, State's role in preventing wildlife trafficking and protecting the environment, exploration of world cultures, and the passport application process. This internship will be amazing because it will allow for the eInterns to do a variety of creative projects, and to learn about the work of the Department of State while developing creative and engaging educational materials.
