Catalyst Project is looking for a Fall 2011 intern

Could it be you or someone you know?


We've had many fabulous interns over the years who have contributed so much love and labor to the organization.  It's a great way to make a big contribution to Catalyst’s efforts for anti-racist movement building, to connect with anti-racist community, and explore organizational skill-building. Previous interns have taken skills developed with us into their communities, paid work, and organizing efforts in a variety of ways.

Catalyst Project internships combine administrative support, program support, grassroots fundraising, political education, community engagement, and mentorship by Catalyst staff and movement elders.

An internship is opening in October of 2011. The minimum commitment is 15 hours a week for 3 months or more. Staff works with interns to develop and direct projects.

    It's difficult for me to overstate how much working with Catalyst for the past six months has helped me in my political development. One year ago, I was arrested in a protest against the police murder of a young African-American man, Oscar Grant, in Oakland. This experience left me with deep questions about how anti-racist strategy should fit into my organizing work, and I was drawn to Catalyst largely because it was a space where I could find support in thinking through these questions. I’m leaving Catalyst as a much stronger activist, with a richer and deeper analysis.” –  Adrian Wilson, 2010 Catalyst Intern
