Community Empowerment Activists

The Community Empowerment Activists (CEA) program develops critically engaged students through internship placement with grassroots, advocacy, and base-building organizations in the San Francisco Bay Area. 

Students will advance the social justice vision of their host organizations through campaigns, coalition-building, and other initiatives in solidarity with diverse San Francisco residents, while examining the complexity of policy, politics, and regional Bay Area dynamics, which impact vulnerable local communities.

The application for cohort 2020-2021 has closed. We will open the application period in March 2021.
