“Students from throughout the state now have the opportunity for this unique hands-on training. For some, this will lead to jobs in the labor movement after graduation. For everyday Californians it means that a new generation of diverse grassroots leaders will support unions and be prepared to take on challenges in the workplace and the community that will benefit all of us."
- UC Berkeley Labor Center Deputy Chair Brenda Muñoz

Labor Summer Internship is now available on nine UC campuses: Berkeley, Davis, Irvine, Los Angeles, Merced, Riverside, San Diego, Santa Barbara, and Santa Cruz. The paid internship program matches graduate and undergraduate students with unions and community groups to hone their research and organizing skills to respond to the growing need for diverse leadership in worker organizations.

This is an opportunity for students within the University of California to get hands-on experience with some of the most dynamic campaigns happening today.

This summer, the eight-week paid internship program will welcome students from across California to work with some of the state’s most prominent labor unions. Past interns came from a range of disciplines, including international development, data science, anthropology, and economics, and used their skills to tackle problems facing working Californians.
