This is a great opportunity to learn firsthand about issues and policy that

affects Asian Pacific Americans. The OCA Internship Program also exposes interns to other aspects of D.C. Last year, intern visits included Congressional offices, where interns met with Representatives, APA staffers, and members of the Congressional APA Caucus. They also met with members of the Department of Justice and discussed issues concerning civil rights and voting rights.

Interns will have a lot of hands on experience at the offices in which they are placed. The OCA internships are a great way for student leaders to learn about OCA, current issues facing Asian Pacific Americans, and while experiencing the day to day activities of internet company.

The main placements are:

  • The OCA National Office (Summer, Fall, Winter & Spring)
  • Capitol Hill (Summer only)
  • Federal Agencies (Summer only)

Application deadlines can be flexible based on students availability. Please contact Doug at the National Office.

In Washington DC, the interns will all participate in weekly Brown Bag lunches and CAPAL programs. They will also have the opportunity to meet various prominent figures.

If you have any questions about this program, please contact Douglas Lee or feel free to call the National Office at 202-223-5500.
