I was blessed to grow up in Chicago during a time when the Bulls were the most dominant sports team in the world. I was crazy about each and every player on the team, but was especially obsessed with BJ Armstrong. Now, I know that you may be thinking that BJ is a funny choice, given the more obvious picks of Michael Jordan, Scottie Pippen, Dennis Rodman and the likes, but there was something about BJ’s work ethic and drive that made me fall in love with him. So when I saw him eating dinner at a restaurant near my house, I could hardly contain myself. Now imagine yourself eating dinner everyday next to your favorite Olympic heroes. As an intern at the U.S. Olympic Committee you could do just that, plus breakfast and lunch.

The United States Olympic Committee, aka USOC, conducts a summer internship program for college Sophomores and Juniors. The internship sites are in Colorado Springs, Colo., Lake Placid, N.Y., and Chula Vista, Calif. Positions are either with the USOC or within an individual sport National Governing Body (i.e., Archery, Swimming, Volleyball, etc.). Interns receive a small stipend in addition to free meals in the Athletes’ Dining Hall.

The program offers internships in the areas of: broadcasting, journalism, marketing, sports administration, culinary nutrition and sport science (strength and conditioning or training/performance). To apply, you must fill out an official application and attach a resume and an official grade transcript. To receive an official application, visit the USOC internship webpage, and send an email to the contact listed at the bottom.
