The Muslim Public Affairs Council is accepting applications from students for its summer internship program in Los Angeles or Washington, DC.

The MPAC internship program helps young leaders who are committed to making Muslims a vital and contributing component in American society, as well as helping them to develop their research, leadership and communication skills.

Interns take part in weekly leadership classes on professional development and networking, along with hands-on experience in government, media, community engagement, interfaith relations and Hollywood outreach.

The deadline to apply is Monday, April 8, 2013. For more information, contact Marium Mohiuddin by telephone (323-258-6722) or email (marium@mpac.org).
