Welcome to the Social Justice & Equity Intern page. Thank you for your interest in the position. Prior to completing the application you must review the SJEC Intern job description and requirements.
Social Justice & Equity Center Interns
The Social Justice & Equity Interns are MiraCosta students who represent the Social Justice & Equity Center (SJEC) and the Student Equity Department. They serve as student staff members for the SJEC, providing resources to members of the college and community. They provide assistance for diversity and inclusion programming, as well as support for events related to the college’s commemorations of History and Heritage Programming & Days (HHM). This support includes some planning, logistics, and promotion of events. Interns, when invited, will give brief presentations to classes and meetings, publicizing upcoming activities. They receive career development and academic credit (1 unit) for completing an Internship with a faculty mentor that culminates in a project related to a topic of their own choosing. Each Intern has a specialty that determines their ongoing responsibilities (flyers, social media, data, etc.). As college representatives, SJEC Interns are expected to be role models for their peers, maintain and demonstrate a professional attitude, and execute sound judgment at all times. SJEC Interns are paid $14.00/hour.
To be considered for the SJEC Intern positions, we ask that you submit:
- A complete SJEC Intern application (see below).
- Complete FASFA application (if eligible) and request Federal Work Study by emailing Lucy Fonseca at email@example.com to request FWS. If you are not eligible for federal financial aid, please indicate this on your application--it will not affect your candidacy, but it helps us plan our staffing budget.
- One online letter of recommendation. Please direct the person completing your recommendation form to submit it online. The person writing your recommendation should be familiar with your academic and leadership abilities (a person who is not a member of your family) such as a teacher, counselor, clergy, club advisor, coach, business leader, employer, etc.. If you are a returning student at MiraCosta College, this letter must be written by a MiraCosta faculty or staff member.
