The Public Policy Institute is offering internships to high school and post-secondary students.

The institute is a student internship program that was implemented in 2011 by Judith Won Pat, speaker of the 31st Guam Legislature, with the assistance of Sen. Wil Castro. The program is continued under Speaker Tina Muña Barnes of the 35th Guam Legislature.

“Reflecting on the successes of the Public Policy Institute, the students were able to do in depth research with a fresh perspective – this is an invaluable benefit for us as policy makers as well as the students themselves,” Muña Barnes stated in a news release.

"Some of the best ideas and work come from fresh minds outside of the system. Also, this is a chance for students to interact with local, regional and world leaders," Castro stated.

Interns may choose to gain experience in areas such as policy research and writing, event management, media relations, constituent support, intergovernmental discussions and communications, according to the release.

The priority deadline for applications is June 4, but applications will be accepted on a rolling basis.

Contact the Office of Speaker Tina Muña Barnes at 477-2520 or for more information.
