UC Berkeley students around Sather Gate

How do you take a desire to serve others, to be a change-maker, to have an impact on the issues you care about, and transform that into a meaningful public service career? Democracy Camp is designed for Cal students interested in enhancing our democracy through public service.

Over Cal Spring Break (March 26–29, 2018), students will gain exposure to different facets of a public service career: legislative paths, community organizations, local, state and federal  government,  and philanthropy.  Participants will learn from presenters about the opportunities available in these fields and will network with presenters and amongst themselves to create a cohort on campus—and beyond—to support their career goals. Additionally, there will be a trip to Sacramento and skill-building modules that focus on practical and tangible takeaways. All meals and course materials are included.

Democracy Camp will take place over Cal Spring Break, from Monday, March 26–Thursday, March 29, 2018. Participants are expected to attend ALL program sessions during this time. Please do not apply if you cannot attend the full program.

Democracy Camp will be held on Berkeley campus with a trip to the California State Capitol. There is no cost to students. All meals and course materials are included. All students currently enrolled at UC Berkeley, including international students, are encouraged to apply!
