The City of Boston’s Office of Housing Stability is currently looking for Fall Interns (legal and non-legal) to join our team.
The Office of Housing Stability (OHS) works with residents to find and maintain stable, safe, and affordable housing. Whether responding to tenants in acute housing crises due to fire, natural disaster, and eviction, or collaborating with key partners (like Greater Boston Legal Services) and stakeholders to address chronic housing crises due to systemic oppression, OHS works to ensure that tenants and landlords are well informed and connected to their rights and resources. OHS is made up of a team of incredible staff including Housing Crisis Coordinators and program staff that support new policies and initiatives. We are constantly looking for new ways to partner with undergraduate and graduate students who share an interest in housing affordability, housing justice, and eviction prevention.
Interns with OHS will have the opportunity to learn from staff who are knowledgeable about housing resources for tenants and landlords and work with Boston residents who are at risk of housing instability. Interns may also have the opportunity to support the research, development and implementation of new programs and policies that the office is exploring.
This is an unpaid position.
To join our team, students must fill out our Internship Interest form as soon as possible, as applications are accepted on a rolling basis.
