WASHINGTON, D.C. (Dec. 23, 2014) — The Organization of Chinese Americans (OCA), Asian Pacific American Advocates, a national membership-driven organization dedicated to advancing the political, social, and economic well-being of Asian Pacific Americans (APAs), opens applications for its 2015 Spring Internship Program.
As OCA continues to celebrate the 25th Year Anniversary of its Internship Program, we invite student advocates from all across the nation to apply for the opportunity to be engaged in advocacy and professional development through a national organization.
“For 25 years we’ve been seeing our interns gain valuable professional experience through OCA’s Internship program. We have seen our interns redefine their goals and careers with these placements and want to see the continuation of the success of the OCA internship program,” said Ken Lee, OCA Acting CEO.
OCA interns are placed in a full-time job and are assigned to a variety of positions in federal agencies, nonprofit organizations, congressional offices, and in public affairs units of corporations in the Washington, D.C. metro area. Placements of the interns are based on individual background, interest, and skill level. Past program participants have gained working experience and exposure to advocacy efforts that have allowed them to return home and take on more active roles in their local communities.
Candidates should be recent graduates, juniors or seniors from two-year and four-year institutions. Interns are provided a living stipend of $2,500 dollars for the 10-week program.
