The College Internship Program in Berkeley, California, one of CIP’s six national centers designed to assist young adults with Asperger’s, ADHD and other Learning Differences in transitioning from adolescence to young adulthood, recently expanded in June of 2012 to additional office and classroom space in downtown Berkeley. CIP Berkeley now occupies a total of 8,719 square feet. An added 370 square foot amphitheater classroom will also be utilized adjacent to the new space.
This expansion allows for growth and student enrollment. The Berkeley Center is located only one block away from Berkeley City College, the BART train, 24-hour fitness, the YMCA, and Shattuck Ave. The UC Berkeley campus is within two blocks.
CIP Berkeley students continue to reside in two bedroom apartments at Library Gardens, directly cross the street from the office and classroom space. Library Gardens is a quiet apartment complex built in 2006 and located next door to the Berkeley City Library.
CIP Berkeley was also home of the first CIP Summer Program at University of California, Berkeley, a two week college experience for transitioning high school students ages 16-19. Since it’s start in 2009, the program has expanded to six college and university locations across the US. For more information, visit www.cipberkeley.org
