TACL announces their summer internship program. Spread the news…


Spend your summer as an intern with a premier Internship Program.

The Taiwanese American Citizen League (TACL) Summer Internship
Program, established in 1992, was formed to infuse the Taiwanese
American community with a greater understanding of the political
system through placement of college level students at offices of
local, state, and national public officials. This allows Taiwanese
Americans to be better recognized as a developed community with a
voice. Our primary mission for TACL is to promote Taiwanese culture,
heritage and identity as well as involvement in American society.

Interns experience first hand how the political system works by
observing and participating in the formation of policies, both
domestic and foreign. In addition to working in their offices, interns
visit top legislators in an intense Sacramento lobbying trip, attend
community events, participate in leadership development workshops, and
various other activities.

List of recent participating political offices:

* Barbara Boxer, US Senator
* Howard Berman, US Representative
* Cruz Bustamante, California Lieutenant Governor
* Gilbert Cedillo, California Senator
* John Chiang, California State Equalization Board Member
* Judy Chu, California State Assembly member

* Bob Margett, California State Senator
* Dana Rohrbacher, US Representative
* Lucille Roybal-Allard, US Representative
