Asia Society Texas’ internship program focuses on providing high school and college-aged students with opportunities to master technical skills, gain essential background knowledge, foster interpersonal skills, and build a network of educational and professional contacts. Through opportunities to build work experience, interns expand their understanding of global affairs and current events that touch upon Asia and Asian America, program development, museum operations, and nonprofit work. The internship also deepens existing relationships and establishes new relationships with high schools, universities, and other community organizations engaged in AST programming.
