The positions cover a range of subjects, such as advocacy, service, the arts, international affairs, law and criminal justice, media and communication, science, political leadership, and policy.

Participating organizations and companies include the American Psychological Association, American Red Cross, Amnesty International, Chemical Manufacturers Association, CNN, Peace Corps, United States Congress, U.S. Department of State, U.S. Drug Enforcement Administration, U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, Walter Reed Army Medical Center, the White House, and the World Bank, among others.
