California’s critical housing shortage has focused attention on the need for more affordable housing. As one of the largest nonprofit affordable housing developers in California, Jamboree provides a variety of internship opportunities across a spectrum of career paths. Interns provide valuable services that help fill the gap for a nonprofit, gaining hands-on experience in a real-world work environment while exploring potential career options.

Jamboree internship opportunities are available in areas such as these business groups:

  • Housing Development oversees project management of affordable housing opportunities and works with design, engineering, construction, and capital partners.
  • Asset Management ensures that the value of each property is maximized, and liaisons with a variety of local and city partners.
  • Marketing Communications manages the Jamboree brand across print, social media, presentations, and major events such as groundbreakings and grand openings.
  • Human Resources recruits and hires new staff, and manages employee benefits, legal compliance and volunteers.
  • Community Impact creates living environments for our residents and their children that help them REACH their full potential through learning, healthy living, and resident involvement and empowerment.
