The Office of Barack and Michelle Obama sent out an email to former White House interns on Friday, announcing that they were launching a 16-week internship program in D.C.

The email said responsibilities would include a variety of tasks, with an emphasis on correspondence duties. The internship will run from Feb. 27 through June 16.

There were no additional details explaining undergraduate or graduate qualifications or whether or not it was unpaid or paid.

Obama has said he plans to take retreats and vacations with his family (which included a kite-surfing session with Richard Branson). He also said he is writing a memoir and helping young people be active in their community through his foundation.
