Housing and Community Problem Solving Undergraduate Internship

In this internship, students are academic-participants in a project exploring ways communities work to address conflicts and concerns regarding housing issues and the ways by which they attempt to resolve them.

Students selected for this internship will work in the organization, learn the role that the organization plays in community life and explore its role in dealing with issues of housing in the community. In the academic component of the internship, students enroll in ISP 392. This course focuses on how communities work to address local problems and develop means to resolve them by considering how government, not for profits, and landlords/developers negotiate community based housing issues on a local level.

If you have any further questions or concerns, please contact Prof. S. Leftoff in the Interdisciplinary Studies Program at sleftoff@jjay.cuny.edu or at 212.237.8452. For the flyer, click HERE. For the application, click here

Common Cause is a nonpartisan grassroots organization whose mission is to uphold the core values of American Democracy. They are currently recruiting volunteers to answer voters’ questions at polling places and to assist voters in reporting any bad practices at polling places to election authorities on Election Day. Common Cause is specifically targeting areas where competitive races are taking place and voters have historically faced barriers to voting.

Prior to Election Day, volunteers will need to register for a 90-minute training where they will be provided with all the information and tools necessary to be a poll monitor. After volunteers complete their training, poll monitors will take a two-hour shift at a polling place in their community on Election Day.

CLICK HERE to register for a poll monitor training right now.

Furthermore, the campaign is offering a fellowship program for applicants who are looking to further their campaign involvement. Fellows will be required to have a greater time commitment than interns and will participate in a Field Organizer Training Program where they will learn the basics of campaign field work, but also gain knowledge about grassroots organizing.
