3540 Wilshire Blvd. Suite 911
Los Angeles, CA
DescriptionInterns have worked on a variety of projects for KAC, including the planning of our THINK (Topple Hunger in North Korea) Conference, our annual 4.29 Commemoration Event, and a social networking outreach and implementation plan. Interested students must be available 2-4 days out of the week to come in for a minimum of 3 hours a day.
Experience at KAC will give interns broad insight into the political process, the dynamics of the Korean American community, and, most likely, community organizing experience on a wide range of topics, from green space to North Korean human rights issues. Interns also often gain direct legislative advocacy experience, on the city, county, state, or federal levels.
ResponsibilitiesWe're currently seeking interns in these areas:
Interns will research, coordinate, and write reports concerning our various community advocacy initiatives. Advocacy priorities include redistricting, as well as voter registration and voter participation.
Interns will assist the Development Director in coordinating fundraising and membership events and activities.
Census Information Center
Interns will work directly with ArcGIS software and US Census data to produce reports for KAC assessing changes in the Korean American population.
Design and Web
Interns will design a monthly newsletter that goes out to KAC members and friends of KAC all over the US. Interns will also work with the Outreach Coordinator to post regular updates to the KAC website, Facebook page and Twitter, and maintain the backend of the KAC website.
