We are committed to developing the pipeline for Americans of Korean descent to prepare for becoming leaders in politics as elected or appointed officials, as political consultants and lobbyists, as advocates for giving Korean Americans a greater voice in the creation and implementation of legislation, regulations and policies that matter most to Korean Americans.

Our internship program is part of this mission and we seek to provide the best possible learning experience for our interns.
