The 19th Assembly District Office Internship Program offers college students a unique opportunity to experience the work of a state Assembly office. The program exposes students to district office operations and activities of a legislator's work. These experiences include working with constituents, conducting community outreach efforts, assisting community based organizations, organizing civic events and projects, databases, staffing the office, and other activities.
Many legislators and senior policy staff began their careers by interning in district offices. Internships are invaluable to gain an understanding of California's democratic process, as well as an excellent opportunity to create important networks while serving the community.
Internships are available to all part-time or full-time students 18 years of age or older. Interns will gain valuable education and work experience by fully participating with our office. All internship work is voluntary and students will not receive any monetary compensation, however, depending on their college programs, students may also receive different types of school credit for participating as interns.
As space becomes available, qualified candidates will be invited for interviews. Thank you for your interest in this very unique opportunity to serve the community. Please complete the application and submit to our office along with a resume, cover letter, and writing sample.
I encourage you to apply. Information and application forms are below.
