The 14th 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 office operations such as the dynamics of legislation, 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 essential activities.
Internships are available to all part-time or full-time students 15 ½ years of age or older. Depending on their high school or college programs, students may also receive different types of school credits for participating as an intern.
Many legislators and senior policy staff began their careers by interning in an elected official’s office. It is a great way to gain a true understanding of California’s democratic process and an excellent opportunity to make important contacts while serving the community.
Interns will gain valuable education and work experience by fully participating in agreed-upon hours of work. All internship work is voluntary and students will not receive any monetary compensation.
