ABOUT THE PROGRAM
The summer internship program in the Office of Senator Thanh Hai Ngo provides young Canadians from Vietnamese communities across the country with an opportunity to gain valuable work experience in the Senate of Canada.
It is a unique opportunity to gain marketable skills and practical work experience in human rights awareness, communication and office administration that will prepare interns for future employment.
Over the course of the summer, Senator Ngo’s interns work collaboratively to produce and publish and report on the human rights situation in Vietnam. In doing so, interns will deepen their understanding of human rights issues abroad and engage in international and Canadian politics.
Please note that while this is an unpaid internship, interns will receive a monthly stipend to cover accommodation and living expenses while working in Ottawa.
