The 70th Assembly District Office Internship Program offers 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 grassroots 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.
Internships are available to all part-time or full-time college students. Depending on their 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 a district office. It is an invaluable way to gain a true understanding of California's democratic process, as well as 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.
If you are interested or know someone who is, please apply online below or download the application as a PDF. Applicants will need to provide their contact information and briefly write why they would like to intern in an Assembly district office. A resume will need to be attached as well.
As space becomes available, qualified candidates will be invited for an interview. Thank you for your interest in this very unique opportunity to serve your community.
