Gideon, a sophomore at Newton South, was fascinated by politics and government. We matched him to the legislative aide for his State Representative of Newton. He had the opportunity to provide office support and attend hearings and daily meetings with invited speakers, including Governor Patrick and members of the MA Senate. As an intern, he was able to volunteer at the National Conference of State Legislators Annual Meeting where thousands of state legislators and staff listened to speakers such as Secretary of Homeland Security, Michael Chertoff and Speaker of the U.S. House, Nancy Pelosi.
Gideon told us that he was very grateful for this opportunity and was thrilled to be asked to return as an intern next summer.
