Exciting opportunity: Paid internships available in 700 organizations

Must read

FACE President Hyepin Im explains the paid internship program.

FACE, a Korean American community development organization, is seeking talented Korean American middle and high school students, as well as college students, for paid internships in government and nonprofit organizations.

Through the AAPI Career Pathways Initiative, applicants have the chance to earn minimum wage ($17 per hour) while interning at over 700 workplaces, including nonprofit foundations, corporations, and government agencies across the city and county of Los Angeles.

“While some parents may be hesitant about their children working, gaining experience at an early age can significantly impact their future career paths,” said Hyepin Im, President of the organization. “Interning with city and county government can open up job opportunities after college, so we strongly encourage young people to explore this option.”

Internship positions vary from administrative roles to technical support, such as computer support, and outreach opportunities at hospitals and clinics. There are also positions available at nonprofit foundations within the Korean American community, such as the Korean American Coalition (KAC) and PAVA World.

Furthermore, FACE extends an invitation to individuals employed by major organizations to learn essential information and skills required for internships.

Sponsored by the office of Los Angeles County Supervisor Hilda Solis, America’s Job Center of California, and Youth@Work, teenagers and young adults aged 14-24 can apply by sending an email to pathways@facela.org. The internships consist of a total of 160 hours and can be conducted in-person or virtually, depending on the position.
