“My office is looking for engaged students in college or recent graduates, who are looking to spend at least 10 hours a week learning about California policy and representing the AD-18 community,” Assemblymember Bonta said. “The internship begins January 8, 2024, and lasts until May 24, 2024. The last day to apply is December 31, so please submit your applications soon to begin your hands-on education on California public policy, and local public service.”

The internship is a one-of-a-kind opportunity to experience the inside world of the California State Assembly while helping serve the local community in the district office. Work as a hybrid intern or from the State of California building, playing a key role in representing the 18th Assembly District, which includes Alameda, Emeryville, and Oakland.



This multi-faceted experience combines detailed legislative analysis with thoughtfully designed communication and social media know-how. Interns work directly with constituents, helping community members navigate state government services, and coordinating with public service groups at events around the District.

Do you have a great idea for the next California law? Interns will have the opportunity to propose new legislation, work with staff to research policy ideas, interview policy experts and interest groups, and present their findings directly to Assemblymember Bonta.

Serving as a student intern is a unique opportunity to work and learn side-by-side with state lawmakers and staff policy experts. As a representative of the office, you would meet and work with local elected officials, community groups, business leaders, and non-profits from across the 18th District, serving as the eyes and ears of the office to ensure we stay up to date with the community issues and needs.
