Council Member MARGARET S. Chin
Council Member Margaret Chin’s office is seeking students with a strong interest in politics, government, civic engagement and public service. Learn the ins and outs of City government: how to work with constituents, pass legislation in City Hall, and fight for New York City’s diverse communities at the district level. Internships run during regular business hours with a flexible schedule and minimum of 20 hours per week. Applicants should be very comfortable using Microsoft Office Suite. Chinese or Spanish language skills are a plus. Long-time residents of NYC strongly preferred, council district residency a plus.
"What made this summer the best summer? Was it my weeklong vacation in California or my weekend adventures outside of New York City? Nope; this summer was the best because of all the time I spent in my favorite city, New York. Interning in Council Member Margaret Chin’s office allowed me to explore Lower Manhattan and gained a unique experience that I would otherwise not have."
