About the Program
Following a 2-week immersive rotation through GLIDE's services, each intern matches into a specific placement in one of our program focus areas: domestic violence support, HIV prevention, primary heatlh care, school-age youth, supportive housing, community arts development, executive leadership, homeless services, food security, case management, job training, and volunteer management. Specific placements and projects change each summer, but our core focus on radical acceptance and walking our talk remains constant.
Strong candidates for the internship program are self-aware, compassionate students already engaged in their communities. Many are looking at a summer at GLIDE in order to experience first-hand what it means to be involved on the social and economic edges of society.
Recent interns have come from UC Berkeley, UC Davis, the University of San Francisco, Yale College, Northwestern University, Austin College (TX), Southwestern University, and Yale Divinity School.
GLIDE has a limited number of stipends available for enrolled degree students from UC Berkeley and UC Davis.
Students from other schools typically are self-funded either through a portable fellowship or directly through their academic programs. Each year, for example, the program typically accepts one seminarian through the Beatitudes Society Fellowship as well as a practicum student from Northwestern University's School of Education and Social Policy.
