2023 KACE Grassroots Internship visiting Rep. Andy Kim at his office in Washington, D.C.
Since its launch in 2004, over 300 high school students throughout New Jersey and New York have joined our annual high school internship program. Under supervision, students research and lead public campaigns to raise awareness of various important issues. Students also have opportunities to meet elected officials and engage with members of the local, state, and federal legislature. Our program is specifically devoted to developing all the inherent skills of our interns as they go out and experience firsthand what it takes to help and support the community.

Eligibility for the Internship Program
Only high school students are eligible to apply for the 2023 KACE Grassroots Internship Program. Applicants will be selected based upon the following factors:
Interns are required to meet performance expectations just as would any other employee. These expectations include punctuality, responsibility, integrity, productivity, team participation, and specialized knowledge.
In order to meaningfully fulfill the objectives of the internship, regular in-person attendance during the Main Session and active participation is strongly encouraged.
The Application Process is very long because it is a real job application. Like all job applications, this is not something to rush through or do last minute. You have to give yourself enough time to complete the application. This is good practice for when you have to apply to colleges and universities. This is also good practice for when you apply for jobs in the future as an adult.
The Application Period for the 2024 KACE Grassroots Internship will open January 1, 2024. The Deadline to apply by is Friday, March 29, 2024. There is an interview component for those applications that make it to that round. Therefore, it is highly recommend that you apply at your earliest possibility to ensure enough time to schedule a job interview if selected from the pool of applicants. We are only able to interview 1 or 2 people per business day between the hours of 10am-5pm. The last interview will be taking place no later than May 10, 2024. There is no guarantee that you will be able to be interviewed after that date.
There are seven documents you must prepare in advance for upload:
Failure to provide any of the required documents may result in the delay of processing your application or the rejection of your application in its entirety. As a reminder, this is a job application. Additional information and instructions are on the application page.
