ANCA-WR OPENS APPLICATION PERIOD FOR 2013 SUMMER INTERNSHIP PROGRAM

The Armenian National Committee of America – Western Region (ANCA-WR)  announced today the opening of the application period for the ANCA Western Region 2013 Summer Internship Program.  Interested individuals may apply online at www.ancawr.org/internship by the June 7, 2013 deadline.

“The ANCA-WR internship provided me with an introduction to the conduct and responsibilities that are expected in the professional work atmosphere and exposed me to the inner workings of politics at the grassroots level.   It was a very rewarding experience, and I made lasting friendships with my fellow goal-oriented interns,” stated former ANCA-WR Intern, Aram Hovasapian.

During the 10 week program, interns will gain experience in non-profit management, government affairs, community organizing and education, communication, media, and planning and executing events. In addition to individual and joint projects, interns will participate in workshops featuring a variety of guest speakers including public officials, ANCA leadership, and specialists from the community.  In successfully completing all internship program requirements, participants may receive school credit.

Applicants must be between the ages of 17 and 23 and be able to dedicate 30 hours per week to the program.  The 2013 Summer Session will commence on June 17, 2013 and will run through August 23, 2013. Applications must be submitted electronically by Friday, June 7, 2013, 5:00pm to be considered.

For more information about the 2013 Summer Session of the ANCA Western Region Internship Program, please e-mail the program coordinator at elen@ancawr.org or call 818.500.1918.

Established in Summer 2006, the ANCA Western Region Internship Program is a selective part-time leadership program, which introduces high school seniors, college students, and recent college graduates to all aspects of the public affairs arena. The program provides an opportunity for student leaders and activists to gain an in-depth understanding of the American political system, Armenian-American issues and advocacy efforts on the local, state and federal levels.

The Armenian National Committee of America-Western Region is the largest and most influential Armenian American grassroots advocacy organization in the Western United States. Working in coordination with a network of offices, chapters, and supporters throughout the Western United States and affiliated organizations around the country, the ANCA-WR advances the concerns of the Armenian American community on a broad range of issues.
