2022 Political Internship Program
The Korean American Citizens League of New England (KACL) invites high school and college students to apply to the 2022 Summer Political Internship Program. KACL is a non-partisan, non-profit organization founded in 1990 to provide a coherent political voice within the community. The KACL political internship program strives to encourage Korean Americans to participate in local politics, expose student to public policy-related careers and mentors, and to develop and hone their leadership skills.
KACL will select three high school students and three college students. High school students will receive a $500 stipend and college students will receive a $2000 stipend. In addition to working in local government, interns will also be provided with professional development and mentorship by KACL board members. The program will start in early June and end in early August. Scholarships are formally presented virtually at KACL’s Political Internship Fundraising Dinner on May 21, 2022. At the moment, KACL plans for the internship to be in-person, but asks applicants to be flexible and plan accordingly for hybrid or virtual programing as well. At the end of their internship, students will be expected to write a short essay describing their experience, which will be published in KACL’s annual journal.
This year, interns will be placed within one of the following offices:
– Boston Mayor Michelle Wu (City of Boston) – Senator Sonia Chang-Díaz* (2nd Suffolk District) – Representative Tackey Chan* (2nd Norfolk District) – Worcester City Council Member Thu Nguyen (City of Worcester)
*Note: Internships with Sonia Chang-Diaz and Tackey Chan are limited to college students.
Duties and responsibilities may include but are not limited to: – Constituent work: logging outreach in constituent database and drafting response letters to constituent inquiries – Research: as policy questions arise interns may be asked to research and write memos on different subject matters – Hearings/Briefings: attend (often virtually) briefings on policy matters and committee hearings and report back on the issues – Legislative tracking: updating information about the status of legislation and amendments filed representatives, writing testimony, and summarizing amendments
What former interns have to say about the program:
“Serving as an intern last summer inspires me to pursue a career in public service and government of my own in the future as it is the best way to give back to the community.”
“I feel that wherever I decide to go with my studies/career, this internship has helped me to develop transferable skills that I can be proud of.”
Eligibility Requirements: Applicant must be a current high school or undergraduate student in good standing. Applicant must be a US citizen or permanent resident of Korean American origin. Applicant must be a New England resident or attend a college in New England. Applicant must have a minimum grade point average of 3.0 (on 4.0 scale), along with evidence of being a self starter, eager to learn, and have excellent oral/written communication skills.
