Fifth Year of Capps Community Interns

This fall marks the beginning of the fifth year in our Capps Community Internship Program.

Each year 10 upper-division undergraduates from UCSB are selected to participate in this prestigious program. In the fall, they complete a seminar covering the leadership, activities, significance, and ethics of nonprofit organizations.  After completing the seminar, each student is matched with a local non-profit to complete an internship during the winter and spring quarters.  Finally, the interns carry out an independent study under the direction of Wade Clark Roof that culminates in an assessment of their experience in the non-profit sector.

This service-learning program is one of several internships administered through the Sara Miller McCune Endowed Internship and Public Service Program.

The interns selected for the 2012-13 year are:

Claire Badger, Santa Barbara Interfaith Initiative
Monica Bobadilla, Pacific Standard Magazine
Hannah Brown, Planned Parenthood
Nadim Houssain, Nuclear Age Peace Foundation
Carly Kray, Orfalea Foundation
Emily Michael, SEE International
Cezanne Rothberg, Storyteller Children’s Center
Rachel Siegel, Direct Relief International
Casey Swank, Foodbank of SB County
Rahel Zeleke, Linked Foundation

Be sure to check back later in the year to see what these talented students accomplish.
