  • Alfred Williams Consultancy
     is working with Environmental Science Associates (ESA) to identify and place an undergraduate candidate intern to assist with a Port of San Francisco's Waterfront Land Use Plan (WLUP) Update Program. The paid position is an excellent opportunity for a talented candidate to gain experience working on large community impacting, environmentally sensitive projects. I'm reaching out to see if you have any students who might be a good fit for the program.

  • The Cultural Peer Mentors (CPM’s) serve to provide guidance, resources, and support to visiting international students who are studying at UC Berkeley as part of the Berkeley International Study Program (BISP). We are here to assist BISP students to make successful cultural and academic transitions at UC Berkeley. Our aim is for Cal students and visiting international students to develop an awareness of other cultures and their own cultural style through frequent interaction with each other. These skills are essential in an increasingly globalized economy and for working across differences.

Each semester, the Berkeley International Study Program (BISP) welcomes well over 400 international students from around the globe who come to study at UC Berkeley for 1-2 semesters, and the Cultural Peer Mentors are instrumental in assisting them with their transition!

In this program, you will:

a. Meet friends from diverse backgrounds and life experiences. 
b. Share your passions and interests with BISP students by planning events for your own group of mentees.
c. Become an ambassador to visiting international students and show them what life in the U.S. is truly like, beyond what they see on TV.
d. Work with a dynamic team of Cultural Peer Mentors to develop your leadership, event planning, and intercultural skills!


Be a current undergraduate student at UC Berkeley with at least one academic year of study remaining.

Strong leadership skills and willingness to take the initiative.

Be empathetic, able to interact effectively and patiently with people from diverse cultural backgrounds and with different levels of English proficiency.

Possess positive communication and teamwork skills.

Plan at least 3 activities per semester for a group of ~80 mentees with your co-leader.

Assist in planning and execution of 2-3 bigger events per semester for the mentees.

This is a year-long volunteer position with an event-planning budget.
