About the Internship
Working in the Mayor's office is an excellent opportunity for those interested in political communications, city planning or public policy to get firsthand experience in a fast-paced governmental office, while directly improving the lives of Berkeley residents.
We are seeking dynamic and motivated interns who passionate about good governance and have ideas. Our office is an open and collaborative place, and it is just as important to us to help you grow professionally as it is to ensure solid deliverables. Issues our interns have worked on have become city law. Most recently, interns developed economic policies, green building standards, amendments to the zoning ordinance to include urban agriculture, and detailed research and reports on homelessness.
We are no longer accepting applications for summer internships. Please check this page periodically for updates on fall 2019 opportunities.
