UC Berkeley's Public Service Center received a $1.8 million grant to support the #CaliforniansForAll College Corps to support students engaging in community service.
The first cohort of the program at UC Berkeley will recruit 100 fellows and will require them to complete 450 hours of service between August 2022 and July 2023. Participating students will receive a total of $7,000 living stipend, paid monthly, as well as a $3,000 education award upon completion of the program.
The #CaliforniansForAll program addresses four core areas: K-12 education, climate justice, food justice and youth behavioral health and well-being. Berkeley Social Welfare will partner with community organizations to create service placements in the area of youth behavioral health and well-being.
