Call for applications to IMPACT! Fil-Am internship program
Members of Filipino American communities in the U.S. Pacific Northwest are invited to join the IMPACT! Filipino-American Internship Program for Summer 2022.
The IMPACT! Program is a nine-week professional development program by the U.S.-Asian Institute (USAI), which allows young Filipino American adults to experience a first-hand look at the U.S. government in Washington, D.C., engage civically with government and political leaders, and reflect on the role they, as future leaders, might play in strengthening Philippine-U.S. relations.
The internship will run from 6 June 2022 to 5 August 2022. The program includes:
- eight-week internship at a prominent Washington, D.C. organization;
- one-on-one mentorship from a member of the Filipino Young Leaders Program (FLYPRO);
- participation in workshops, networking opportunities, and social/cultural activities; and
- stipend of $1,000 or $2,000, depending on whether the participant will be joining in person or virtually.
The internship program, which has the support of the Philippine Embassy and Consulates in the U.S., was launched by the USAI to empower future Filipino American leaders. It aims to inspire, motivate, and prepare the youth to contribute to civic transformation.
The program is designed to uplift and equip future leaders with the knowledge they will need in furthering their careers. Young members of Filipino American communities in the U.S. Pacific Northwest are highly encouraged to send their applications, and take advantage of this rare opportunity to serve and lead.
Interested candidates may apply via this link (http://bit.ly/3zWnIUr) until 30 January 2022. Additional information about the internship program is available on the USAI website (https://www.usasiainstitute.org/impactprogram).
