The OCA Internship Program is one of OCA's signature student leadership development programs. Celebrating its 26th year in 2015, the OCA Internship Program seeks to cultivate future leadership for the Asian Pacific American (APA) community by providing opportunities to work in the public  sector and learn about issues affecting APAs. Based in the nation's capital, interns will learn to build relationships, meet with legislative officials, and engage in leadership development workshops.

The program has successfully led past interns to become more active on their college campus and increased the presence of the APA community in local, state, and federal governments. OCA intern alumni have become executive directors, legislative staffers, OCA National Executive Council members, and are leaders in the private and public sector. Internship placements are available year-round at the OCA National Center, where students work on OCA's program areas as well as assist with communications and development.

The 28th annual OCA Internship Program is generously sponsored by the Coca-Cola Foundation, the Comcast Foundation, Southwest Airlines, the William & Sinforosa Tan Kaung Internship Endowment Fund, the Mary Ann & Paul C. Yu Internship Fund, and the Jessie and Claudine Cheng Internship Fund.
