The Boulder Housing Coalition is accepting applications for a Summer 2015 internship position. Interns are highly valued and fully integrated into our staff and community. We seek people who are passionate about social justice issues, with prior knowledge and experience of housing cooperatives, as well as excellent communication and interpersonal skills.
Our nonprofit organization has been dedicated to creating affordable, sustainable housing cooperatives in Boulder, Colorado, for the past 15 years, and we now find ourselves at a critical juncture in our evolution. We have received substantial financial support over the years from both the City of Boulder and Boulder County in pursuit of our mission. However, our progress has been impeded by local laws limiting the number of unrelated individuals that can legally live together.
Since the fall of 2013 we have been working closely with city staff, elected officials, and other local nonprofit and civic organizations on a campaign to change these laws, and enable the creation of many more community living opportunities in Boulder. Serendipitously, this work has coincided with a more extensive housing policy initiative from the City of Boulder. As we head into what we hope will be the home stretch of the campaign, we are seeking the support of a full time summer intern who can help get us across the finish line!
