There’s one more day to apply for the 2014 OCA Summer Internship. The deadline application has been extended to Monday, March 10. Student advocates from all across the nation are encouraged to apply for an opportunity to spend 10 weeks in Washington, D.C.
Interns are assigned to federal agencies, nonprofit organizations, congressional offices, and public affairs unit of corporations. Moreover, summer interns are also integrated in many OCA programs and activities, which include the OCA National Convention in Los Angeles, California.
The Internship has helped to lead former participants to become more active on their college campus and significantly increased the level of Asian Pacific American civic engagement in local, state, and national public policy issues. A number of OCA alums have pursued careers in public service, advocacy, and as appointed officials as well as non-public sector positions.
Candidates are selected from both two- year and four-year institutions. Typically, the participants are rising juniors, seniors, or recent graduates. The interns are placed in a full-time position and provided a living stipend. Placements of the interns are based on individual background, interest, and skill level.
