2024 UCSB Labor Summer Applications Now OPEN! Deadline to submit is March 15th

The UC Santa Barbara Community Labor Project is offering UCSB students an opportunity to spend their summer learning about community and labor organizing by participating in UCSB Labor Summer! In collaboration with the Central Coast Labor Council, students will learn about and apply organizing and research practices as paid interns at Central Coast unions and allied organizations that are working to advance labor and achieve social and economic justice.

UCSB students, including 2024 Spring graduates, can apply!

This 8-week engaged-learning summer program partners UCSB students with labor unions and community organizations located on the Central Coast (Ventura, Santa Barbara, and San Luis Obispo counties) to immerse students in labor movements, social and economic justice organizing, and to work on issues at the intersections of race, class, gender, immigration status, and disability. As a result of the historic expansion of new labor centers across the University of California, UCSB students will also have an opportunity to meet and collaborate with students across the state! 

Each Labor Summer intern will be compensated with a $6,400 stipend.
