Internships at The Palestine Center

The Jerusalem Fund for Education and Community Development offers summer internship positions with its educational program, The Palestine Center, for undergraduate students with full-time availability. The internship program provides students with an opportunity to conduct primary-source research, develop writing and organizational skills, build valuable DC contacts, gain hands-on experience and observe the extensive political and policy-related happenings in the metropolitan DC area. As important members of our team, interns gain valuable exposure to the functions of a highly productive non-profit organization working on issues of national and international significance.

Summer interns coordinate a summer lecture series, conduct in-depth research on a topic related to the Palestine issue and assist with Palestine Center briefings, film screenings and symposia. All interns are encouraged to attend relevant events in the area during their internship and to pursue avenues of research that are of personal interest to them, provided the research relates to the work of the Center. The Palestine Center staff provides guidance on research and logistics, helps to educate interns on the Palestinian issue and advises them as needed on career development. This internship is unpaid.

EXTENDED Deadline to apply for the 2015 Summer Internship: Friday, 10 April 2015

So what is Asian American Awareness Month?

It's a nationally recognized month where we celebrate the history, identity, and heritage of Asian Americans. It's actually in May but because there is no school at that time, we decided to celebrate it now.

Who is we?

We are the Asian American Student Alliance (AASA). We are an umbrella organization under which 12 different Asian affiliated organizations fall such as Chinese Student Alliance, Sig Beta Rho Fraternity, Vietnamese Student Alliance, etc. Asian American Awareness Month is organized by the board of AASA and promoted by the member organizations.

So how do you celebrate?

You celebrate by recognizing the history of Asian Americans. We have come a long way from the Chinese migrant workers that built the rail system of this country or the Filipino laborers who found home in New Orleans. The hard work and risks our parents, grandparents, great grand parents took have brought the current generation of Asian Americans into a whole new era. An era where the American dream is finally within the grasp of average Asian Americans. Our theme for Asian American Awareness Month is thus the 'New American Dream.' One in which Asian Americans can aspire to whatever heights in whatever fields they are most passionate.

We have therefore organized a series events throughout this month with the purpose of appreciating where we are and addressing some the social issues that continue to persist.
Here is the link to our blog for a short description of the events: http://gatechaasa.blogspot.com/

And our webpage if you'd like to learn more about AASA itself: aasa.gatech.edu
