Asian American Studies community internship database

Welcome to the UCSB Asian American Studies department database for community internships.

This resource was created to support our new Community Studies curriculum. Students can now receive academic credit (4 units) for internship service that takes place during the summer or Fall academic term, through enrollment in 197 (Field Studies).

The database lists organizations in the United States whose work engage principles of community change1:

"The process of producing modification or innovation in attitudes, policies, or practices in the community for the purpose of reducing (or eliminating) problems, providing for general improvement of the way needs are met, or developing assets for the benefit of its members." (Homan, 2008).

The listings include not only community-based organizations focused on serving Asian Americans and Pacific Islanders, but also local Santa Barbara nonprofit organizations whose missions address social justice and the dynamics of racial, class, and gender inequity. Besides an alphabetical index, users can search targeted California regions, and by service category.
