The HACU Alumni Association (HAA)

The HACU Alumni Association (HAA) was founded in 1997 by individuals who directly benefited from HACU’s educational programs. Over 11,000 students have participated in the HACU National Internship Program (HNIP) and several hundred have benefited from other HACU student programs like the HACU Annual Conference Student Track and the HACU National Scholarship Program. Today, the HAA serves as a network hub for HACU alumni, provides mentoring to current HNIP interns, promotes HACU student programs, and fosters leadership and service for the greater Hispanic community

We encourage you to remain connected with the HAA beyond your internship!

Benefits of the HACU Alumni Association

Joining the HACU Alumni Association (HAA) is an immediate way to expand your professional network.  HAA is a growing community of past and current HACU interns, ready to share ideas about federal government employment, graduate school options, professional development, and community service activities.

Best of all, you benefit from the following: 

  • National Network:  HACU Internship Program participants become part of a national network of over 10,000 peers with demonstrated leadership ability and records of achievement. This diverse network provides young professionals with the opportunity to explore and meet people outside of their own field, gives you access to experienced leaders and promotes cross-sector dialogue, leadership, and service for the greater Hispanic community. 

  • Exclusive Opportunities:  HACU Alumni stay connected via our social network groups, general meetings, and networking events where they share and receive exclusive job announcements, service and professional development opportunities, and much more.

  • Volunteer President's Volunteer Service Award:  In partnership with the President's Council, HACU will recognize alumni members for their volunteer service hours earned over a 12-month period or over the course of a lifetime at home or abroad.
