Intern Program

For Fall 2020, QARC will be hosting our Intern program as a DeCal (student taught class) for 2 upper division P/NP units.



The Intern Program is a fantastic way to get involved with QARC and the LGBTQ+ community here at Cal, especially for incoming students. The year-long program has a number of components, each designed to help interns develop different skills. They help plan and carry out vital programming and often develop leadership skills that enable them to become leaders of QT+ orgs and QARC Board. Learn more about our intern program here.
