CDI Summer Internship

Organization: 
Cooperative Development Institute
Location: 
Massachusetts
Summary: 

The Cooperative Development Institute (CDI) seeks an intern to research and write a succinct brief on the interrelated issues of affordable housing, rural housing, and manufactured housing with a focus on the model of resident ownership purchases in Massachusetts. The internship is geared toward students at either the undergraduate or graduate level, with interest in economics, social justice, housing, and/or rural communities. The intern will be compensated at a rate of $15/hr, with an expected workload of 5-7 hours per week. They will work with members of CDI’s Massachusetts team to conduct both primary and secondary research– collecting national and state-level housing data, conducting first-person interviews, and drafting and editing a final product. CDI is a remote organization, so the intern will be able to work from home, but given the focus of the research, they should be based in Massachusetts. The length of this internship may be extended beyond the end of the summer, depending on the research process and availability.
