C2C Live Well San Diego Southeastern Internship Program

Paid summer internships for Southeastern San Diego youth

The County of San Diego is seeking to develop a pipeline of local talent for its upcoming Southeastern San Diego Live Well Center. The C2C Live Well San Diego Southeastern Internship program will provide job training to 75 youth in the area, followed by paid internships for 50 of those youth to work in the County’s Health and Human Services Agency, and opportunities for interns to apply for long-term employment with the County.

In addition to training provided by the San Diego Workforce Partnership and case management from Access, youth who are selected as interns may receive business clothing from Banana Republic and transportation assistance.

To apply, you should be:

  • 18-24 years old
  • Live in Southeastern San Diego (eligible neighborhoods below)
  • Have flexible availability in the summer

If the program receives more applications than it has capacity to accept, priority of service will take effect. This means space will be reserved for foster youth, youth living in households with low-to-moderate income (income table below), and youth who are not enrolled in school.

All program participants will be asked to complete a background check, but criminal backgrounds will not necessarily prevent you from participating in the program. Many of the internship opportunities available are open to individuals with certain criminal backgrounds.

All participants should primarily reside in one of these neighborhoods:

Alta Vista
Bay Terraces
Barrio Logan
Broadway Heights
