Welcome Michelle Amante back to the show. She is the VP of federal workforce programs at the Partnership for Public Service. The Partnership recently rolled out a new intern program for high school students that Michelle describes in this episode. She also explains what the IPA program is ... that's short for the Intergovernmental Personnel Act Mobility Program (OPM website below).

IPAs are unicorns in the federal government, coming from academia, think tanks and other such institutions. Agencies pay their salaires for short terms (think two years) and they can offer targeted expertise. Learn more about how to be one or get one in your organization at this link.
