ROUND LAKE BEACH, Ill. – State Rep. Sam Yingling, D-Grayslake, is announcing that his summer internship program is open for applications. Yingling is encouraging all high school and college students who have an interest in state government to apply.



“For students, summer is the time to get real, hands-on experience in areas that interest them,” said Yingling. “My summer internship is a fantastic way for students to get a taste of what working in a legislative office looks like.”



Throughout the internship, students will gain experience in government work and communications, as well as learn about state government. Interns will assist Yingling and his staff in community outreach efforts, event planning, data management and more. In addition, interns will have the opportunity to attend meetings and community events with Yingling and his staff.



“Understanding the role of government is important for all young people, regardless of what career field they choose to work in when they are done with their schooling,” said Yingling. “Helping educate our students is very important to me, and my internship program is a great opportunity for students to gain valuable experience and education for their future.”



Those interested in applying should submit a brief letter explaining their interest in the program by emailing Yingling’s full-time constituent service office at repsamyingling@gmail.com. Students with further questions can contact Yingling’s office at 847-231-6262.
