Thanks to the generous support of Hyundai, CHCI is proud to kick-off Hispanic Heritage Month with the release of our all-new “CHCI Summer Intern Diaries.” Earlier this summer, four lucky CHCI interns from across the country were selected to capture their CHCI experience on-camera during the eight-week Congressional Internship Program in Washington, D.C. Each intern was given a video camera and asked to document their entire journey -- from their hometown goodbyes, their new life in D.C., and of course working on Capitol Hill. The result is a series of six videos that highlight the tremendous impact of CHCI's premier leadership development program.
