Cortlandt's Alex Bleiweis Lands White House Internship

The Cortlandt Manor resident will be living in Washington, D.C., as a member of the White House Internship Program.

The White House Internship Program announced that Cortlandt Manor's Alexander Bleiweis is one of the participants of the Summer 2012 session this month. The mission of the program is to make the White House accessible to future leaders around the nation and to prepare those devoted to public service for future leadership opportunities.

Interns work in one of several White House departments, including the Domestic Policy Council, the National Economic Council, the Office of Cabinet Affairs, the Office of Chief of Staff, the Office of Communications, the Office of Digital Strategy, the Office of the First Lady, the Office of Legislative Affairs, the Office of Management and Administration, the Office of Presidential Correspondence, the Office of Presidential Personnel, the Office of Public Engagement and Intergovernmental Affairs, the Office of Scheduling and Advance, the Office of the Vice President, the Office of the White House Counsel, and the Office of White House Fellows.
