Apply for a Library Internship
A Community Future School Program


MOCHA is seeking high school aged youth for stipend-supported positions as Library Interns. We are looking for responsible teens with an interest in art and working with youth. This is a great opportunity to gain experience with the visual arts and interacting with children in the community at the Oakland Public Library.

To intern with MOCHA at the Library, you must: Be a High school student, have an Oakland address, be available at the times MOCHA at the Library is in session, and have your parent/caregiver's approval. All interested applicants must submit an application and commit to working a minimum of eight weeks (not necessarily consecutive weeks) during Spring 2023. Anticipated start dates will be January 2023 and March 2023.

Shifts are available Monday-Saturday, during times MOCHA at the Library is in session. These shifts are traditionally during Afterschool hours, with the exception of one session on Saturdays in the early afternoon. To learn more about the Library Internship, please contact Monika Brooks, Minister of Youth Leadership and Development:
