Looking to gain experience, meet new people, and connect more deeply with Seattle? Undergraduate Community-Based Internships (UCBI) is a UW program that connects undergrad students interested in public service with non-profit and public-sector organizations like El Centro de la Raza, Neighborhood Legal Clinics, Pike Market Senior Center & Food Bank, and Sustainable Seattle for on-site paid internships. Here is a map of all the 2019-2020 organizations and detailed descriptions of all the internship possibilities!
Internships run from the first week of winter quarter in January and end the last week of spring quarter in June (don’t worry, you won’t be expected to work over finals week or during breaks). Additionally, student interns are supported through weekly cohort meetings on campus with peers and Carlson Center staff for deeper dives into power, privilege, identity, and other salient issues they confront in their daily work.
If you are interested in learning more, there are two upcoming informational sessions that are highly recommended by UCBI:
- Tuesday, October 8, 12:30pm – 1:30pm (Mary Gates Hall 171)
- Thursday, October 10, 6:00pm – 7:00pm (Mary Gates Hall 171)
Applications open next Monday, October 7th. Visit the UCBI website to learn more about the program, other organizations seeking interns, and the application timeline. Specific questions can be directed to email@example.com. This is a great opportunity to connect with established Seattle organizations and participate in an highly-supportive internship program.
