Johnson invites high school and college students to apply for internship program

Updated 4/14/2021 8:29 AM

State Senator Adriane Johnson (D-Buffalo Grove) is seeking motivated, community-minded high school and college students to serve in her district office as interns.

"I want to give young people a chance to make a difference in our community while gaining valuable experience working in government," Johnson said. "If you're an energetic, driven student who's interested in public service, I encourage you to apply to be a part of our team."


Interns would take on an active role in Johnson's office, helping plan events, assisting with outreach to community organizations and local governments, and researching legislative initiatives. Interns will primarily work remotely, but may be asked to attend in-person events with the senator when conditions allow.

The position requires a minimum commitment of five hours per week from May to August, but scheduling is flexible. Johnson's office will work with interns seeking college credit for the internship.

Johnson's staff is hiring interns on a rolling basis, so candidates are encouraged to apply as soon as they are able. Applicants should email Priyanka Khanna at with a resume and a brief explanation of their interest in joining the 30th District team.
