VNLC 2017-2018 Internship Applications

17-18 Internship (1)

Greetings from Vietnamese Language and Culture! VNLC is a student organization at UCLA that promotes and preserves Vietnamese culture and traditions by upholding the values of cultural involvement and educational enrichment, and we would like to invite you to apply for our 2017-2018 internship program!

Our year-long internship program is designed to familiarize members with VNLC’s goal of spreading awareness of the Vietnamese traditions and customs. Through this program, interns will have the opportunity to learn more about the cultural and linguistic barriers existing between the youth and older Vietnamese generations, the educational issues present in high school communities, and the ways we can help bridge these divides. This will also allow interns to have more hands-on experience planning and hosting outreach events, such as the annual VNLC Tết Festival and our spring high school field trip!

We are looking for students who have an interest in Vietnamese culture and community service and want to contribute their dedication and enthusiasm to the club!

The internship application can be found below:
