Job Openings & Internships

Community-Academic Partners in Service (CAPS) connects the LLU community and the local community by serving as a resource for both. We develop and support programs that combine knowledge with action and address the needs of both communities. Through CAPS, LLU students have the opportunity to engage in service-related activities that enhance the quality of life of community members while also enriching the students' learning experience. Our ultimate goal is to build reciprocal and sustainable relationships between LLU students, faculty, and the local community. This will in turn support social change, improve health outcomes, and eliminate health disparities in San Bernardino community members.
