Internship Program

SAN Internship Program

The South Asian Network (SAN), a community based organization advancing the health, well-being, and civil rights of South Asians in Southern California, is launching its Internship Program. The goal of the program is to empower future leaders, so they may further SAN’S social justice work and mission. Interns at SAN will work with our advocates to provide community access to health services, combat domestic violence & sexual assault, and increase civic engagement in the South Asian community. Through the program, interns will gain valuable experience in the issue areas they are working in, strengthen their leadership and management skills, and have the opportunity to meet and network with leaders in our community.
