n the UMCWC program, Friday afternoons are set aside for trips to tour important government offices, historical sites, landmarks, or other attractions in the D.C., Maryland, and Virginia areas.
Examples of possible trips include tours of the United States Capitol building and the State Department, shows at the Folger Shakespeare Library or the Kennedy Center, and chartered bus trips to Monticello or Mt. Vernon.
Through these trips, participants in the Capitol Hill Internship Program will get to know Washington and the surrounding area. Additional trips may be scheduled as components of student courses.
