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.

Urban Planning Part Time Teaching Job
We’ve been invited to deliver some after school programing at a private school in Bellevue and are looking to hire a teaching artist. In addition to covering an introduction to architecture, urban planning, and design, the school would like the project to focus on light rail. Do you know of anyone within your network or have access to a list of people that might be interested in this kind of role?
The position is only at one site, Open Windows in Bellevue, and only a couple of hours a week, so it’s very part time. The job announcement is posted here: https://seattlearchitecture.org/wp-content/uploads/2018/10/2018-Winter-OST-SAF-Teacher_Description.pdf
If you have any suggestions of where we might be able to share this info and get some interested people please let us know.

Spend the Spring Semester in Asia!
In spring 2019, the CapAsia group intends to explore and carry out planning and building projects in Thailand and Laos, with a possible stopover elsewhere in Asia. The program is led by Professors Nihal Perera and Tim Gray, possibly joined by Profs. Olon Dotson and Wes Janz.
CapAsia is a nationally and internationally recognized, unique field-semester (11 weeks in the field). The participants truly immerse in the socially, culturally, and historically different Asia and learn by doing collaborative projects with leading universities in the region. As you learn about Asian cultures (by doing projects), make local friends, and help communities achieve higher quality of life on their own terms, this life-changing experience will help you consciously situate yourself in today’s changing world. CapAsia has received several national and international awards, and the directors were nominated for two national awards. It is open to students in American universities interested in society, culture, and space.
It is affordable and definitely worth the money. The program fee $7,200 will cover long-distance travel and lodging costs. The rest, cost of food and daily travel, is minimal. In addition, students pay tuition fees at Ball State’s rate and transfer credits. You are eligible to use most scholarships and financial aid.
If interested, please contact the program director, Nihal Perera (firstname.lastname@example.org).
