College to Congress is a non-partisan nonprofit organization dedicated to creating a more inclusive and effective Congress by empowering the next generation of public servants.
Why It's Important
We seek a democracy that truly represents the people that it serves.
Talented students with limited financial resources and no political connections often forgo applying to work in DC because they simply cannot afford it. Congressional internships, therefore, are filled by affluent and connected students who can afford to work unpaid. These individuals go on to become congressional staffers, policy influencers, and even run for office. This has created a bubble of politicos who have similar socioeconomic experiences and who speak from a limited world view. By leveling the playing field for the next generation, C2C provides the foundations for a more collaborative and effective government.
Our Congressional Champions
