Summer Internships

The Summer 2022 Pre-Application Is Now Closed

Check back in February 2023 for Next Summer's Pre-Application

Summer Internships teach you valuable job skills and allow you to explore various career fields. Most of CCR's Internships are connected to a City College of San Francisco course, so you'll also earn college credit, and learn about CCSF career preparation programs. You can also take credit recovery or a CCSF course on their own, without an internship.

If you filled out the Pre-App and you haven't heard back from us by Friday, April 8, 2022, please look for other opportunities. Some can be found here in our SF High School Summer Guide or with the City's Opportunities for All summer internship program.

Most of CCR's Internships are connected to a City College of SF (CCSF) course, so you'll also earn college credit while gaining work experience and earning $17.34/hour. You can also just take a CCSF dual enrollment course.

Most internships last for a 6 week period. Some internships may be extended to 9 weeks.

Internships are available for all current SFUSD high school students who will be 14 or older by 6/1/22. 

*Sophomores and juniors have the most options for internships.

*Few internships are available for 9th graders...your best chance is to apply to intern with children/youth, as there are more opportunities.

Most internships are working with youth and allow you to explore careers in that field. A limited number of internships may be available in other career fields working in offices, at a worksite or virtually. These internship opportunities may include art, animation, architecture, biotech, health, computer science, culinary, gardening, etc.

If the program you choose has an in person CCSF course, you will have to provide proof of vaccination.

What Happens After Completing the Summer 2022 Pre-Application?

After you submit a completed Summer 2022 Pre-Application Survey... 

  1. If chosen, someone from the SFUSD Internship Team will reach out to you via email with next steps. You may also be contacted by the SFUSD Early College team or Credit Recovery.
  2. In the invitation email, you will be invited to a mandatory two-part SFUSD Hiring & CCSF Application Session, which will be held in February, March and/or April. At these help sessions, you will receive support to apply to CCSF and complete the hiring process.  
  3. Once you have been assigned a hiring session, you will need to obtain the necessary items if you have them (including a signed Social Security Card or Valid US Passport + Social Security Number). If you do not have a Social Security Number, we will provide other instructions.
  4. You are encouraged to open up a Bank Account (if you don't already have one), as we suggest Direct Deposit vs. being mailed your check.
  5. At the application sessions, you will complete the CCSF Application; if you have applied to CCSF before, please track down your CCSF ID (starts with a "W" or a "@"). If you have never applied before, you will need to have a non-SFUSD personal email address.
  6.  Once you have completed all of the Summer Internship Enrollment Steps, you will be offered a final internship placement and work schedule. 
  7. If you do not come to the hiring session, or do not come prepared with your documentation, you may be moved to the next round of placements, if any, that will be offered on a space available basis.
