State Representative Christine Hunschofsky (D-Parkland) is offering students the opportunity to experience local government by enrolling in this semester’s internship program.
High school students in grades 10-12 can participate in after-school and weekend events. Work includes meeting constituents, assisting in photography, and servicing social media needs.
“The kids have a good time, and this is a great introduction to state government,” said Brianna Schofield, district aide for Hunschofsky.
Hunschofsky served as the mayor of Parkland from 2016 to 2020. In 2020 she was elected to represent the 95th district of Florida which includes Parkland, Coconut Creek, Coral Springs, and Margate. She was reelected in 2022 without opposition.
Hunschofsky’s office will be accepting applications throughout the school year; there is no deadline to apply.
Qualified students can earn service hours toward their high school diploma. For more information about the intern program, contact Brianna.Schofield@myfloridahouse.gov or call 954-959-5600.
