Each summer we support a cohort of our students to engage in intensive five-week internships at local businesses and organizations. We help students find an industry partner based off the students’ interests, and coach them through the application and selection process. This is a paid opportunity for students to earn professional work experience, 10 elective credits, and grow their resumes and networks. Students can apply to internships through our website.

Past partner organizations include:

  • 67 SueƱos
  • Oaklandish
  • Souley Vegan
  • City of Oakland Housing Authority
  • alaMar Kitchen
  • OUSD Transportation Department
  • Rose Foundation
  • Reading Buddies
