We are the Berkeley Student Food Collective: people working to provide more accessible, more sustainable, and healthier food to the Berkeley community — and learning how to run a business in the process. We run a nonprofit, volunteer-run grocery store across from Lower Sproul that is governed democratically by members. And we want you to join us.

If you're looking for a semester full of experience in food justice, business, marketing, accounting, or nonprofit management in a real-world business — or being a part of a community actualizing their vision for a more equitable food system — sign up at
http://foodcollective.org/apply.

Paid Housing Internship Program

Intern applications are now being accepted for the Bay Area Housing Internship Program (BAHIP)! The deadline to apply for the 2019/2020 internship year is Friday, March 29. The full application with background and instructions can be found here. Applicants can also choose to use the online form found here.

NPH's Bay Area Housing Internship Program (BAHIP) is a one-year, paid internship program designed to recruit and train students at Bay Area colleges and universities to become housing development professionals. This internship aims to provide a launching pad for college students from low-income, communities of color backgrounds into a career in affordable housing development and project management. We strongly encourage applications from students entering their last year of college who have an interest in urban studies and/or community development. Students who are bi-cultural and/or bilingual/biliterate are also encouraged to apply. For more information about BAHIP and our current class of amazing interns, please visit the BAHIP page.
