ABPA Launches Internship Placement Program

Arab-American Students’ Bridge to the Government 


Washington, D.C. – Arab-American Business and Professional Association (ABPA) is proud to announce the launch of its Internship Placement Program after a series of meetings with the Office of Personnel Management in Washington, DC. The program aims to place select students into federal government agencies, facilitating experiential learning for students in the heart of government. Among ABPA’s current partner organizations are the Bureau of Land Management, the Census Bureau, and the Departments of Energy, Homeland Security, and Agriculture.

ABPA, established in 1985, is a 501(c) nonprofit organization that functions as a professional network for the Arab-American community.  ABPA strives to encourage rising Arab-American professionals to serve the public. The Internship Placement Program provides opportunities for students to be exposed to influential companies, think-tanks, and federal government agencies.  Through one-on-one mentorship, ABPA provides students with resume assistance, career coaching, and connections to relevant industries. All of ABPA’s services are free, designed to benefit select students who are chosen through a rigorous application process. More information on the application steps is available at www.abpadc.org.   

ABPA’s mission is to invest in the next generation of Arab-American leaders, guided by the belief that Arab-Americans can and should use their skills to serve the public. Doing so will allow them to offer their talents to the public and will bring attention to their contributions. ABPA’s Internship Placement Program is the home of the best and brightest Arab-American students in the country, and we could not be prouder of them.
