Good Morning,

I am writing to inform you of the internship opportunities available to college students in Congressman Becerra’s district office in Los Angeles. Although unpaid, interns walk away from their experience with a wealth of knowledge about how our nation’s political system works.

Strong organizational skills and the ability to work as part of a team and under pressure are essential.

Interns are given key roles in the following departments of Congressman Becerra’s district office:

· Constituent Casework – helping constituents resolve problems with federal agencies such as Social Security, Veterans Affairs and Immigration.

· Field – assist field deputies to address issues affecting residents of California’s 34th Congressional District and represent the Congressman at various community events and meetings.

· Legislative Research – research, analyze and provide briefs on the status and content of various House bills. Assist the district staff to produce talking points for the Congressman on numerous local and federal issues.

· Constituent Outreach – assist in planning and executing “Coffee with your Congressman” town hall meetings and other events throughout Los Angeles.

· Administrative – support the district office’s service to constituents by answering phones, fielding constituent inquiries, filing, mailing and sorting.

Volunteer opportunity, Western Political Science Association, Hollywood, CA, March 27-Saturday, March 30.

Professor Christian Grose is looking for students willing to volunteer for an upcoming political science conference that is being hosted by USC and being held at the Loews Hollywood hotel. The conference will involved thousands of political scientists, professors, and students from across the United States. Students who volunteer are able to be registered to attend the conference for free (which normally costs $75 for students who do not volunteer). Many of the conference participants will be presenting cutting-edge research on panels and roundtables on a variety of political science topics, and those who volunteer are welcome to attend these panels once the volunteering is complete. Scholars will present work on comparative politics, American politics, international relations, political theory, political philosophy, environmental politics, law and politics, race/ethnicity and politics, and many other areas.  Information on the conference and the panels and events are here: http://wpsa.research.pdx.edu/meet/

Students who are interested in volunteering should email Professor Grose at cgrose@dornsife.usc.edu and he can provide more details. The volunteer work will consist of sitting behind a desk in the hotel and registering incoming attendees at the conference, many of whom will be professors or occasionally practitioners you may have read or heard of from your classes. Other volunteers will be responsible for maintaining the book room, where new books are sold to attendees. All volunteers are welcome to attend panels and otherwise participate in the conference during the times in which they are not volunteering.

Students will sign up to volunteer for a 3-hour shift on either Wed. Mar. 27; Thurs., Mar. 28; Fri, Mar. 39; or Sat. Mar. 30. Student volunteers are responsible and liable for their own transportation to the Hollywood Loews hotel (it is one block from the Hollywood/Highland red line train stop). This opportunity a good one for any student, but may be particularly of interest to students with strong interests in political science, international relations, law or those students interested in attending graduate school in the future.
