The White House Office of Presidential Correspondence (OPC) Associate Program is open every spring, summer, and fall, and we are currently accepting applications for the Summer 2014 semester. Associates work alongside our staff and interns, gaining valuable professional experience while learning about the White House and the Federal Government.
OPC plays a key role in facilitating an open dialogue between the President and the American people. The office’s mission is to listen to and understand the stories and concerns of the American people, and to send responses on behalf of the President. Staffers, interns, and associates receive and reply to: letters and emails; calls coming into the White House Comment Line; gifts sent to the First Family; requests for Presidential proclamations, messages, and greetings; and requests for assistance from the Federal Government. The office also provides the President with a daily sample of 10 letters to help keep him in touch with a broad range of ideas and experiences of people across our country.
Attached please find our Summer 2014 program flyer and FAQ sheet, which can be shared with students and recent graduates from your institution. Applicants must be at least 18 years old and hold U.S. citizenship, and they must be currently enrolled in or recently finished with a degree seeking program. OPC associates serve in our office for a minimum of 30 hours per week.
The Summer 2014 program lasts from May 27 – August 8, and the final deadline to apply is January 31, 2014. This is an unpaid position. If a student or graduate is interested in applying, please encourage the applicant to email a resume and statement of interest to: OPCAssociate@who.eop.gov.

The Fund for the Public Interest’s Los Angeles office is a national non-profit that runs grassroots campaigns for the nation’s top progressive organizations including Environment California, CALPIRG , Fair Share , and the Human Rights Campaign .
Currently, we’re working with CALPIRG on a campaign to require labeling of genetically modified foods. More than 60 countries require labeling of GMOs so that their citizens can make healthy, responsible and informed choices, but Americans are currently left in the dark. So CALPIRG is working to require GMO labels on food, the same way we list nutrition information. We know the public overwhelmingly supports this, but big ag companies like Monsanto are spending millions to stop something as simple as labeling laws. Monsanto and Dow spent $45 million to defeat Proposition 37, a California GMO labeling initiative, just last year. Passing a GMO labeling bill through the state legislature will set the precedent needed to pass a national labeling law giving all Americans the right to know what’s in the food that they buy. We’re currently hiring undergraduate students for part time jobs to work on this important campaign!
Throughout the year we’ll be working on several progressive campaigns, including a campaign to ban fracking in CA.
The Fund for the Public Interest is a national non-profit organization that works to build support for progressive organizations across the country. We run campaigns for Environment America, USPIRG, Fair Share, and the Human Rights Campaign. This year we are running offices in over 35 cities, mobilizing public support, and meeting with our elected officials to help win environmental and social justice campaigns.
This last year our staff helped to protect the Pacific by banning single use plastic grocery bags in over 80 cities across the state of California. We’ve also helped repeal Don’t Ask Don’t Tell, and made school lunches safer by increasing food safety standards.
Currently, we have paid positions open for campaign staff out of our LA office in Koreatown and in our 35 offices across the country. We are looking for candidates who work hard, communicate well, and are dedicated to working towards positive environmental and social change. This is a great opportunity to have a big impact on issues that matter, and gain meaningful experience in grassroots organizing.
As a member of our staff, you will fundraise, build membership for our partner groups, educate and activate citizens on pressing issues, and build the grassroots pressure it takes to win. You will also have the opportunity to organize press conferences and build coalitions with other non-profit organizations. While on staff you will learn how to effectively generate public support, build upon your understanding of the political process, and create positive social change.
Thanks for your consideration!
