District Internship Application

The California State Assembly District Office Internship Program offers high school and college students a unique opportunity to participate in and experience the work of a State Assembly office. The program exposes students to district office operations and the 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, database development and upkeep, staffing the office, and other activities. 
Interns will work closely with District and Capitol staff. While the internship is unpaid, Assemblymember Kansen Chu supports students requesting credit for their internship through their school or university. Schedules are flexible, but we request that interns commit a minimum of 10 hours per week. 

Desired Skills: 

  • A passion for government, public policy, and communication
  • Highly detail-oriented and a willingness to learn new tasks
  • Excellent written and verbal communication skills
  • An ability to work independently
  • Experience with Outlook, Word, and Excel
