District Office Internship

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 city and state agencies and may travel to Sacramento.  While the internship is unpaid, Assemblymember David Chiu 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:

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