HDC is the nonprofit membership association dedicated to fulfilling our vision that all people live with dignity in safe, healthy, and affordable homes within communities of opportunity.
I’m reaching out to you to introduce or, perhaps, re-introduce our organization and our upcoming internship opportunity for students of color looking to work in the affordable housing sector. HDC’s internship program is a 9-month paid internship designed to recruit, train, and retain racially and socio-economically diverse students into the affordable housing sector.
Priority is given to students enrolled in the Fall 2019 academic quarter (2019-2020), and who are entering their last year of undergraduate or graduate studies. Additionally, students who have a background, or are majoring in the following, are strongly encouraged to apply as these skills will be essential to success in this program: Real Estate Development, Urban Planning, Construction Management, and/or related.
The internship consists of three pillars to fully engage and support the prospective intern. The first is the intern, the second is Program Administrator, HDC, and finally the third is the Host Agency which includes our member organization where the intern will be placed.
Attached you’ll find the application packet for the internship program for you to review. The deadline to apply for the internship is June 28th,2019. Additionally, I would be happy to do an in-person meeting or a meeting over the phone to discuss this opportunity further.
