Internship App for 2021-2022
De Anza College Vasconcellos Institute for Democracy in Action

We are committed to providing opportunities for students to build their skills and knowledge outside of the classroom, to apply the knowledge they've gained from such courses as in the Leadership & Social Change Certificate program.

Paid interns commit to and take on leadership roles, but are accountable for major responsibilities in the projects/campaigns they are placed on. The ultimate goal? Build student power and be agents of change in this world.
