The Ella Baker Center designs and implements people-powered campaigns to bring peace, opportunity and justice to our communities. Interns are a crucial part of our success. We host students and community members for both part-time and full-time internships that provide hands-on opportunities to be involved with our work. At this time, our internships are volunteer positions.
In the past, our interns have helped plan some of our biggest events including Throw Down for the Town: The Oakland Service Festival and The Ella Awards. By gathering sponsorships, doing community outreach and coordinating volunteers, our interns help set our events up for success. Our interns have also worked on environmental and criminal justice policy, provided support to our Communications team, and learned about youth empowerment, community organizing, and civic engagement.
