Volunteer Internship Program (VIP)

Looking to get involved on campus? Want to get better connected within your community? Interning at the Cross Cultural Center is the ultimate way to do this! Volunteer Interns are students who are looking to serve as part of a core planning team with a student coordinator for upcoming CCC events and programs. VIPs have some basic knowledge of the CCC, social justice issues, and are looking for an in-depth project experience. Once selected, VIPs make a two-quarter commitment to the CCC and receive transcript notation. With approval, VIPs can work with up to two student coordinators over both quarters.

The deadline for the VIP application is December 2nd. Online applications are preferred, but if you'd like a hard copy, please contact our Volunteer Coordinator. Those interested in becoming a general volunteer are welcome to apply year round.
