Public Service Opportunities
The Cal Corps Public Service Center offers a wide array of information and services for students "who want to volunteer once in a while, work with a student group, apply for a fellowship, take a service-learning class, or get paid to address important social issues." Some of the programs administered by the Cal Corps office are:
- Cal in the Capital is a student-managed internship program housed at the Cal Corps Public Service Center that prepares dozens of UC Berkeley students for challenging summer internships in Washington, D.C.
- The BUILD Literacy tutoring program is a large K-12 outreach program. BUILD is part of America Reads, a national campaign that challenges everyone to help all children learn to read, including English-language learners and students with disabilities.
- Alternative Breaks Program is a program that immerses students in communities faced with social issues that are of interest to the student. Participants take week-long trips over winter or spring break to diverse communities and learn about a range of social issues, such as homelessness, poverty, immigration, health care, sustainability, and more.
Some of these positions are listed as Work-Study jobs.
