Academic Internships for Community Partners

Important Announcement

CPP students may participate in on-site in-person internship activities in the State of California provided the student and the organization follow current Federal, State, and County public health guidelines effective May 19, 2020. Students and organizations will be required to submit evidence they are in compliance with public health guidelines in BroncoSERV.

Applying for a Partnership

At CPP we value strong and lasting partnerships with engaged community and industry organizations. In our internship program, you will serve as co-educators and help to guide new generations as they enter the workforce.

The purpose of the University Community Partnership agreement is twofold: 1.) it provides guidelines that allow for safe and positive learning environments where the risk and liability have been minimized for all parties; and 2.) it provides necessary information to list your organization in our internship database where interested students search for internship opportunities.

If you already have a current university community partnership agreement with us and want to submit a new internship opportunity, please email
