To encourage high school students to be actively involved in the
community, the TACL, Los Angeles Chapter began its Journalism Internship
Program in 1999. Every year, TACL works with Rosemead-based weekly
newspaper Pacific Times
to provide talented high school
students an opportunity to intern in a professional environment. This
program offers students the experience of what it is like to be in the
world of journalism and media. The interns learn first hand the
production and distribution of a newspaper and benefit from interactions
with journalism professionals. In addition, the program includes
attendance to community events and volunteering activities. TACL hopes
that, through exposure to journalism and the community, the program
would foster our youth’s awareness of the multi-culture of our society
and increase their participation in fields that are traditionally
underrepresented by Taiwanese American.

Big Bear, CA - Taiwanese American Citizens' League (TACL) presents 2011's Leadership Identity Development (LID) Winter Camp in Big Bear Mountain from February 18-21. This is the first of an annual summit that focuses on developing Asian American high school student leaders and bridging the gap between first and second generations. Designed for students ages 13-18, TACL LID’s counselors lead middle to high school students through four days of cultural workshops, team-building activities, and snow activities. In contrast to the TACL-LID Summer Camp, Winter Camp will focus more on incorporating youth into the national high school organization, Junior Taiwanese American Student Association (JTASA). While Winter Camp will have a decent amount of leadership training and confidence building, it is also an opportunity for students across Southern California to build lasting relationships. Registration for campers is available online at www.jtasa.org.
Campers will meet in a pre-determined location (details to come) to board a bus and will subsequently be transported to Big Bear Lake City where they will be housed in a spacious three-story mansion - girls on one floor, guys on another. Lodging is located in a safe neighborhood and is ten minutes away from Big Bear Mountain Resorts. All activities, except for snow activities, will be held inside the lodging area. Out of the four days of winter camp, one will be dedicated towards snow activities including, snowboarding, skiing, and sledding where the campers can have a day of fun with their new friends.
Registration begins January 18th, there are only 50 spaces available. Camper registration fee is $200 per person. Discounts are available for registering with new friends, up to $40 off.
Price - $200
1 friend - $180 ($20 off for both people)
