The California Coalition for Rural Housing is proud to announce its 19th Annual Internship Program for Diversity in Rural Nonprofit Housing and Community Development in California, Oregon and Washington State.

This is a very unique and dynamic internship program for students interested in learning about what it takes to build affordable housing and strong communities in underserved, diverse, rural and emerging areas by using technical, qualitative and business skills in working for social change. We specifically target minority students who come from low-income, rural and/or immigrant backgrounds with a strong commitment to improve the quality of life of low-income communities. This opportunity is open to all majors. Application deadline is April 15, 2016.
