Hey students! Are you interested in making a difference in the AAPI community? Want to sharpen your research, communications, and event planning skills? The White House Initiative on Asian Americans and Pacific Islanders is accepting applications for the Summer 2016 internship class.
Interns at the Initiative are responsible for assisting staff on a wide range of AAPI issues and priorities, including capacity-building, civil rights, data disaggregation, economic development, education, health, immigration, language access, and workforce diversity.
In addition, interns will help write policy memos and proposals, draft blogs, assist with communications and social media, coordinate and staff events, and conduct outreach to national and local AAPI organizations and leaders. Regional and remote interns will focus primarily on expanding AAPI regional engagement efforts through effective outreach and event planning.
The following internship sites are available:
• Washington, DC at the Initiative headquarters
