About the Program

Following a 2-week immersive rotation through GLIDE’s services, each intern is matched with a placement opportunity in one of our program focus areas: domestic violence support, HIV prevention, primary health care, school-age youth, supportive housing, community arts development, executive leadership, homeless services, food security, case management, job training, and volunteer management.

About You

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.

Available Funding

Students from schools typically are self-funded either through a portable fellowship or directly through their academic programs. GLIDE has a limited number of stipends available for enrolled degree students.
