Job Title: Health Policy and Community Capacity Intern (available positions: up to 2)

Application Deadline:  We will start reviewing applications on May 15, 2016. We anticipate making offers by May 31, 2016.


Praxis’ philosophy of work is shaped by a deep understanding of structural and historical determinants that have led to the health disparities experienced by our nation’s most vulnerable communities.  Our ideal intern candidate will share our passion for health, economic and environmental justice.

Our internships, typically 40 hours per week for 10-12 weeks, are paid ($15-$17/hr) depending on experience. The internship is based in Oakland, CA, and will likely require travel to other parts of the US.  We also welcome interns that have their own funding or who are eligible for work study.  We anticipate this internship to last for 10 to 12 weeks during the months between May and October of 2016.

Our internships are designed to provide interns with a very real experience of the health justice/policy, training and field organizing. For candidates with extensive training and experience, this will be an opportunity to apply your skills in three national projects impacting various communities; for organizers with less direct experience and training, this is an opportunity to learn the current national landscape of community based organizing, people-centered training methodologies and grassroots campaign strategy while exploring the fields of public health, communications and environmental justice.
