The Washington Center provides immersive internships and academic seminars to students from hundreds of colleges and universities and young professionals from across the U.S. and more than twenty-five countries.

TWC helps students who otherwise may not have the opportunity to pursue their interests, experience what a successful career looks like, and establish a path toward their professional future. Along the way, it inspires students to become well-informed, public-spirited, and more socially engaged in their communities.

As the largest, most established program of our kind, TWC has 90 dedicated, full-time staff and more than 600 higher education, corporate, government, foundation and internship host partners. They are independent, not-for-profit, and committed to providing transformative educational experiences that change lives.

More than 60,000 TWC alumni have gone on to serve the public, private, and nonprofit sectors. They hold leadership positions in virtually every career field, including law, education, social work, medicine, journalism, diplomacy, business, and politics.

For more information, contact Professor Jon Hooks (jwhooks@muw.edu) or Professor Thomas Velek (tgvelek@muw.edu). You can also find out more about The Washington Center by emailing info@twc.edu.
