Intern with the China Club of Seattle!
The student internship on the Board of Directors of the China Club of Seattle is intended to introduce the student to the process of board governance, nonprofit management, and activities of the China Club of Seattle. The internship will provide the student with an experience that will enhance his/her career in international studies and help him/her develop leadership skills that could lead to later participation in the community or as a board member of a nonprofit organization.
