CSUCI Corps program is a paid community service internship program specifically designed to support student leaders advancing service, service-learning and community engagement throughout the Santa Barbara and Ventura County. The Corps program is an off-campus “high impact internship” which translates into greater student success outcomes as students are more connected to the campus and the community and receive professional mentorship from their supervisors. CSUCI Corps pairs student interests and skills with nonprofit organizations in the area, crafting the internship so that it addresses the goals of the organization, and gives Corps members a rich learning experience within the non-profit sector.

The Corps program consists of six arms of service:

The Corps program aims to:

  • build and support a network of community-minded students in their academic, civic, and professional development while increasing their community involvement in meaningful ways
  • foster connections between the University, its students, and the community
  • provide pathways for CSUCI students entering graduate school, workforce or the Peace Corps
