2014 KACE Alumni Night

2014 KACE Alumni Night

Korean American Civic Empowerment (KACE) is now accepting applications for its 2015 Grassroots Internship Program. Become a part of KACE, as we educate and mobilize the Korean American community. You’ll be joining the 150 others before you who grew up to be the next leaders of our community through our internship. Through this unique program, our summer interns will learn:

(1) the importance of engaging Korean Americans in civic affairs;

(2) the process of engaging Korean Americans in civic affairs as voters; and

(3) the important issues the Korean American community faces today.

Our program is specifically devoted to developing all the inherent skills of our interns as they go out and experience firsthand what it takes to help and support the community.

This is a 26-week unpaid, part-time equivalent program, from May 1st through November 6th, which features individualized leadership training, the opportunity to meet community leaders in small group settings, exploration of community and cultural issues as they apply to Korean Americans, and career advice in a wide range of public service professions including government, law, business, journalism, non-profit management, and politics. Interns are expected to average approximately 250 clock hours over the course of this program.

Any high school and college students (under 21 years of age) in New York and New Jersey are eligible and 15 applicants will be admitted to the program in each area. Upon successful completion, each intern will be awarded a Presidential Service Award, along with a commendation from a local elected official.
