Thanks to supporters like you, we met our goal for the CKA-KALCA Public Service Internship (PSI) Program! With the generous support of 28 unique donors, including PSI alums, we raised $30,000 to continue this leadership development initiative and expand our growing donor base.
Since the program's founding in 2016, the CKA-KALCA Public Service Internship Program has supported more than 70 college students and aspiring public servants, placing them in prestigious government and public sector internships throughout Washington, DC and New York City. CKA also provides a generous scholarship of $3,000 for every participant of the PSI Program, as well as high-impact leadership training and closed-door mentoring events with senior Asian American leaders.
Thank you for sharing our passion for supporting young leaders.
We made this video to show how much we appreciate all of you for making our work possible. Enjoy!
