Internships & Fellowships
2019 OCA-GH Internship Program
The OCA Internship Program is one of OCA's signature student leadership development programs. Celebrating its 40th year in 2019, the OCA Internship Program seeks to cultivate future leadership for the Asian American and Pacific Islander (AAPI) community by providing opportunities to work in the public sector and learn about issues affecting AAPIs.
2019 OCA-GH Community Advocates Fellowship
The OCA-Greater Houston ("OCA-GH") Community Advocates Fellowship Program is normally a 12-month community advocate development program designed to build a grassroots network for OCA-GH and Civic Engagement Partner organizations to engage in policy and advocacy activities. This year, we are expanding the timeline from a 12-month Fellowship to a 16-month Fellowship due to the importance of ensuring the AAPI community is counted and visible for the 2020 Census and Presidential Elections. Additionally, the Fellowship will have 2 rounds with the 1st cohort from March 2019 to June 2020, and the 2nd cohort from June 2019 to November 2020. Thus, the Capstone Project for this Fellowship is to build and further OCA’s TX 2020 Census and Presidential Elections campaigns, #BeCounted and #SeatAtTheTable.
