Job Title: San Francisco Community Benefit District Internship
Description: San Francisco Urban Innovation Community Benefit District
A major initiative to form a new, economic-development focused Community
Benefit District (CBD) is underway in San Francisco. The San Francisco
Urban Innovation Community Benefit District (UI-CBD) aspires to support
the economic, physical, and social development of the parts of San
Francisco that remain the home to traditional
production/distribution/repair (PDR) kinds of businesses, working artists
and craftspeople, and increasingly also represent one of the most vibrant,
mixed-use, transit-oriented sets of neighborhoods in the City. The
neighborhoods included in the UI-CBD are the Northeast Mission, Showplace
Square/Lower Potrero, and the Dogpatch/Central
Waterfront. Learn more about the UI-CBD on our website www.ui-cbd.org.
We have an opportunity for one or more internships in support of this
initiative. These are unpaid internships.
Specific areas where we need assistance include (all or any of the
- Project management and coordination
- Communications and community outreach strategy
- Technical support in such areas as mapping, data collection, and the
development of assessment scenarios
As this initiative is only a few months underway, you will have the
opportunity to get in on the ground floor of the project. At the same
time, we have a well-organized Steering Committee and initial funding in
place, so that you will be working within a professional and organized
team of volunteers and several specialist consultants.
If successful in organizing, this will represent the City’s largest CBD to
date and the only CBD in the City with a focus on economic development
across a wide range of both traditional and emerging industry sectors.
The ideal candidates will have an interest in community development, urban
planning, and/or small business and economic development.
