Destination DC is the organization charged with marketing the nation’s capital for travel and tourism. COVID-19 has significantly damaged our industry. The visitors we welcome have seen their meetings, events and plans cancelled. The businesses we support are focused on survival and recovery.
As a result, most internships and many seasonal jobs in hospitality have been cancelled. We remain committed to helping the smart, creative and enthusiastic young people here in Washington, DC. We’ll enlist our interns to imagine concrete steps towards recovery while ensuring an equitable hospitality and tourism industry.
This virtual internship program is a bright spot during a very tough year. We know we will be inspired by what the students envision for our industry’s future.
