TWC’s Mission is Building Future Leaders


Leaders are built from the inside out. They are made, not born. The Washington Center’s program advisors and internship site supervisors work tirelessly to ensure that students get the most out of their internship experience.

The Washington Center believes it is a fundamental civic duty to instill in all program participants the need to be well-informed, public-spirited and socially engaged leaders. TWC’s alumni hold leadership positions in virtually every career field, including law, education, social work, medicine, journalism, diplomacy, business and politics. Several even serve on TWC’s Board of Directors.

Two Core Programs
