Why host an intern? BAHP is aimed at creating a more inclusive and diverse talent pool of housing development project managers. Modeled after the highly successful Rural West Internship Program of the California Coalition for Rural Housing (CCRH), BAHIP helps the affordable housing and community development field ensure that we reflect the diverse needs, views, and talents of our Bay Area communities. By advancing leaders of color in our movement, we take concrete action toward racial equity and inclusion within our industry.
As a host agency, you will support the crucial mission of racial equity and inclusion while benefiting from the unique insights and contributions of our BAHIP interns.

NPH’s Bay Area Housing Internship Program (BAHIP) is a one-year, paid internship program designed to recruit and train students of color at Bay Area colleges and universities to become housing development professionals.
This internship aims to provide a launching pad for college students from low-income communities and communities of color into a career in affordable housing development and project management. We strongly encourage applications from students entering their last year of college in fall 2021 who have an interest in urban studies and/or community development. Students who are bi-cultural and/or bilingual/biliterate are also encouraged to apply.
