APAC Summer Internship Program

“As an APAC intern, I was honored to intern with the Office of Mayor Todd Gloria, where I learned first-hand about public policy and the legislative process. Whether I was helping to write talking points for the mayor, assisting constituents, or marching in the Pride Parade, the internship experience was truly rewarding, and I gained a much deeper understanding of local governance. I would highly recommend the APAC internship to anyone who’s looking to advance their civic engagement and leadership skills.”
~ E. Wong, APAC Summer Intern 2022
