Learn organizing or research and policy skills for Social & Economic Justice
Have you ever organized a meeting? Researched an issue? Volunteered in your community? Taught a class? Do you have the courage to knock on a door and listen to someone’s story? Can you imagine a better future for the working poor? If your answer to any of these questions is “yes” or if you want to learn how to do these things, then Labor Summer is for you!
The UC Berkeley Center for Labor Research and Education (Labor Center) and co-sponsor San Francisco Central Labor Council are offering students an opportunity to spend their summer learning about social and economic justice and reflecting on the intersections of race, class, gender, and immigration in the labor movement. Labor Summer is a full-time, PAID, intensive eight-week educational internship program from June 18–August 10, 2018.
Students learn from and work with labor and community organizations in Northern and Central California, applying their skills in real-world settings on issues vital to the state’s working people.
Find out more and apply to the UC Berkeley Labor Summer Internship Program.
Applications are due Monday, February 26, 2018, 11:59 PM (PST)
“When I started my internship with the Berkeley Labor Center I knew that there was power in numbers, but had no idea the power data and research could provide. Data can provide the facts unions need to accomplish their goals, but data isn’t something that just happens. Workers need to be involved in the collection process and must be involved in creating the questions so that the data can be useful to achieve better working and living conditions.” — Labor Summer Intern 2016
