Post-Baccalaureate Internship Program
The Alliance Health Project began its Post-Baccalaureate Internship Program in 1991 with short-term internships for college students. Today, as a one-year program, it has become an integral part of the agency’s structure and is designed to target college graduates who have an interest in the health professions, social services, or non-profit management.
This one-year program helps AHP not only to better manage the volume of high quality services we offer, but also to groom future mental health, social service, and public health providers with expertise in HIV care. It provides interns the opportunity to give back to the community while learning valuable skills and fostering professional growth. Past interns have gone on to enjoy successful careers in medicine, psychology, public health, social work, and public interest law.
Application deadline extended to March 15, 2013.
These are the facts about AHP, but they don’t begin to describe the experience in store for interns. We promise you will be challenged and enriched. Whether you are on the telephone screening clients or doing research for one of our publications, you will never forget how important your work is. And, among the more than 250 people associated with AHP, you will find some of the most expert, dedicated, caring and outrageously funny co-workers on the planet. We hope you will join them.

Internship Facts and Figures
- Internships begin in July and last for one year.
- The work week for interns is 32 hours.
- Remuneration consists of an $900 per month housing stipend paid directly to each intern’s landlord. The bad press about the San Francisco housing market is, unfortunately, true. Housing is expensive, but $900 still buys a room in a shared flat or, with luck, a studio apartment. AHP can provide interns with a list of short-term housing providers that can help them find starter housing before they arrive.
- Most of our interns find part-time, paid employment that covers other living expenses and often leads to full-time work after their internship.
