Note about our hiring process: All applications received will be redacted to remove the identity of the applicant before being forwarded to the hiring manager for their initial review. This step helps us to reduce the impact of implicit bias in the hiring process, as well as preventing favoritism toward applicants who may be known to the organization or hiring manager prior to submitting their application.

Internship Opportunities

Thank you for considering Alchemist CDC. We do not presently have any pre-designed internship openings, but we are always interested in collaborating with students to design customized internships that can assist them in their educational and professional pursuits. 

Alchemist CDC regularly works with college and university students (pre- and post-graduate) to offer them an exciting opportunity to work directly with community members. Students gain hands-on work and service experience, and Alchemist’s projects benefit greatly from the knowledge and enthusiasm of its interns. 

It’s wonderful to see Alchemist volunteers and interns go on to do exciting new things, and it’s safe to say the experience one gains working with us can help build careers in community service. For example, Amy Edmonds, who completed an internship with us, went on to work for the Ecology Center’s Farmers’ Market EBT Program as Program Assistant and is currently an Analyst at the Department of Family and Community Medicine at UCSF. Other interns have gone on to work for organizations such as an urban gardening non-profit and SHRA. Yet another former intern has served on our board of directors for six years.

Alchemist CDC is also open to crafting an internship position around your academic and career goals, focusing on such skills and programs as: policy change, community outreach and engagement, social justice collaboration, vacant lot revitalization, marketing, evaluations, and social media.
