A member of Dickinson College’s football team, he also spends time volunteering with the Special Olympics and at Project SHARE, a Central Pennsylvania food bank, in addition to helping facilitate Dickinson’s campus-wide bone marrow registry program, Be the Match.

“It is been a true pleasure for me to host Sophia, Serena and Tucker at the Statehouse this summer,” stated Kane. “These young leaders and scholars have been a valuable asset to our office and represented our district incredibly well. I am eager to witness their continued contributions to our community and future successes in their many endeavors. ”

Each summer, Kane invites passionate and engaged young leaders of the Eleventh Worcester District to intern on Beacon Hill. Each intern attends the House of Representatives Intern Speaker Series, which provides interns with unique exposure to state government’s processes and a diverse array of stakeholders. Kane’s interns conduct policy research and analysis of legislation, as well as attend numerous briefings on policy issues and current events on behalf of the office. In addition, interns monitor news developments and summarize updates on local and regional areas of interest.

Summer interns for Kane serve until the conclusion of Session, when summer recess begins. Kane welcomes a limited number of college-aged interns each summer. Those interested in learning more about an internship with her office should call 617-722-2810.
