YASP 2024 Internship

YASP 2024 Internship


YASP (Young Adult Service Program) connects Asian-American high school and college students with internships at various community organizations and the offices of local elected officials throughout NYC. Co-hosted by The Korea Times, YASP has provided Asian American youth with the opportunity to serve their local community and learn the importance of service since 2001.


To be eligible for YASP, applicants must be AAPI-identifying high school or college students whose school and/or home address is within New York City (Five Boroughs). High school students must be a sophomore or above as of Fall 2024, and college students must be a freshman or above as of Fall 2024.

Host Sites will include MinKwon Center for Community Action, Fifth Avenue Committee, Queens Botanical Garden, Offices of Elected (City & State) Officials, and more.
