“Working with powerful coalition members of CURB has been one of the most impactful parts of my internship. I have formed solid relationships with multiple people and organizations that will last long beyond my three months here. I have also improved my research, outreach and grassroots organizing skills. I would highly, highly recommend this internship for anyone looking to make connections, learn and improve their skills and find a place where an intern’s perspectives, experiences, passions and insights are appreciated, valued and grown.”

~Annie Morgan Banks, Summer Intern

CURB is committed to investing in the leadership of people of color and formerly incarcerated people. Formerly incarcerated people, people with incarcerated or formerly in, women, queer and trans people are encouraged to apply.

All positions are unpaid, although interns may receive school credit or funding if offered by their program. Interns are asked to make a minimum commitment of three months to the organization and to meet a number of work hours agreed upon in advance. Our offices are located in downtown Oakland (wheelchair accessible) and in Inglewood (not wheelchair accessible). We will accept applications until August 22, or until the positions are filled.

To apply, e-mail your resume and cover letter to info@curbprisonspending.org. Please put “CURB Internship,” in the subject line and let us know which internship you are interested in and which office you’d want to work in.
