GLENDALE—The Armenian National Committee of America-Western Region is still accepting applications for the fall session of its Internship Program. The deadline to submit applications is Friday, September 30, 2016, 5 p.m. Interested individuals may apply online at ancawr.org/internship.
“Through my participation in the ANCA Western Region Summer Internship, I grew personally and professionally. Theprojects and workshops I was engulfed in amplified my pride as an Armenian living within the diaspora and strengthened my identity. The benefits of partaking in events such as our trip to Sacramento challenged me professionally, as I met with elected officials and advocated on behalf of a renowned organization and my community in Los Angeles. The ANCA Western Region Internship not only provided me with multiple resources for success but also challenged me in ways which contributed to my professional development,” noted 2015 summer intern Sarin Keosian.
As part of the program, interns will learn the nuts and bolts of community organizing through weekly workshops and lectures with community leaders, assignments ranging from assisting organizational committees that implement policy, programs and events to registering community members to vote and working with local chapters on issues that affect the Armenian-American community.
