Internship Program

HCAP Leadership Internship Program

The HCAP Leadership Internship Program places Hunter College undergraduate students at community-based organizations that serve Asian/Asian American communities in New York City.

Students are matched with an Asian/Asian American community-based organization that speaks to the student’s career aspirations, academic interests, and goals for their internship experience.

Are you interested in…..

  • Gaining practical experience at an Asian American community-based organization?
  • Exploring work in: public health, housing rights, cultural arts and history, immigrant rights, gender equity, and youth development?
  • Building your leadership skills, furthering your professional development, and gaining exposure to a range of career pathways?

Check out the HCAP Student Leadership Internship Program! It is:

  • A semester-long course (ASIAN 29000), taken for 3 credits (1 semester) or 6 credits (2 semesters)
  • A 10-15 hour/week internship. Students are matched with an Asian American serving organization in New York City
  • An opportunity to participate in a series of workshops and events throughout the semester, focused on skills building, professional development and exploring different career pathways
  • An opportunity to receive individual coaching, support and guidance

 

Students accepted into the internship program can register for ASIAN 29000. They meet bi-weekly with the HCAP Director during the semester and complete short assignments to process and reflect upon their experience. A final project is due at the end of the internship, developed by the student in consultation with the HCAP Program Director.

TO APPLY:

Interested students should contact the HCAP Program Director, Caitlin Ho, at ch1322@hunter.cuny.edu the semester before to express their interest and discuss the program.

Students can also present the HCAP Program Director with a potential internship site, if they already have an Asian/Asian American organization in mind.
