* COVID-19 update: The Intensive Internships in September 2022 will be in person. You must provide proof of vaccination to participate, or you must be enrolling to fulfill an academic requirement of your declared major or minor.*
Cal Teach offers a week-long intensive internship before the UCSC academic year begins. This internship is open to new and continuing Cal Teach interns; each continuing intern serves as a mentor to a new intern. They provide a week-long experience in a high-need rural or urban school, and require participants to be available for up eight consecutive hours each day of the internship week.
1) The Intensive Internship Application Form is a google form with short response questions (1-2 paragraph answers for each question). Make sure to have well thought out responses before submitting the form.
- The application includes providing an Unofficial Transcript. Attach the PDF when prompted in the application.
2) Send the Cal Teach recommendation Form link to a present or past supervisor, professor, teacher, advisor or tutor. When requesting your recommendation give your recommender the link and inform them that there is no need for a letter. NOTE: If you have already participated in a Cal Teach internship in the past, you do not need to submit a new recommendation letter.
