Mobilize College Internship Program
"Through APIs Mobilize, I had my first internship with Assemblymember Patrick O'Donnell. I was able to learn about my community and the role we play in addressing the issues around us.
This set the foundation for my desire to help improve the quality of life for others, which is what I hope to achieve through my Civil Engineering internship at HDR inc, as well as being able to serve organizations on campus such as Nikkei Student Union and Women in Transportation Seminar."

"The greatest benefit from participating in the College Internship program was the hands-on experience from being at an office and connecting to amazing people with big and hopeful ideas.
My favorite part of the program was developing strong relationships with the staff of the district office where I worked at and being able to learn more about how local governments work so that I can help members of my own community become more engaged.
APIs Mobilize gives you the opportunity to understand how local governments work and be surrounded by individuals who genuinely care about their constituents. It's both a humbling and inspirational experience."

"APIs Mobilize deepened my understanding of my Asian-American identity and it informed me about the political systems that have historically marginalized immigrants and people of color.
APIs Mobilize also provided me with the opportunity to learn more about the intricacies of government through an internship with Congresswoman Judy Chu.
This program has ultimately increased my knowledge of the structures that are necessary for creating tangible, social change and it taught me what it means to be an engaged and informed citizen."
