The Public Service Internship (PSI) program connects students with Bay Area social justice issues through internships that focus on policy, community organizing, or direct service. Students intern for 8-10 hours a week for the academic year and enroll in a field studies course for units. Student interns also meet as a cohort throughout the year to build leadership and professional skills and explore social change strategies.
