CalCorps: Magnolia Project

Magnolia Project: Summer Internship, Summer Service Trip, and UNO Semester Exchange Magnolia Project Overview In 2006, UC Berkeley began its work, partnering with community based organizations with a ten year commitment to work together. Formed in the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina, The Magnolia Project is a University of California, Berkeley student social justice organization created in collaboration with the Cal Corps Public Service Center. This year marks the fifth summer of a ten-year commitment to working in solidarity with Gulf Coast communities. The Magnolia Project seeks dedicated student volunteers who are not afraid to get dirty and challenge their own assumptions about a just rebuilding process in the Gulf Coast. The program offers a 3 week Summer Service Trip, an 8 week Summer Internship Program, and a Semester long exchange with the University of New Orleans. Upcoming Information Sessions!
