One of our favorite things about the Bay Area is the cultural wealth that the many residents bring to the land. This rich diversity translates into incredible experiences through art, food, dance, festivals, and more!

Ngyuen Huynh (Bay Area Corps '17) describes the region, saying, “You can find me all the way south enjoying the delicious Vietnamese food of San Jose, the nightlife in Oakland, the hip and vibrant scene of Berkeley, or the beautiful sites and parks of San Francisco.”

Below are some other considerations to help you decide if the Bay Area region is a good fit for you.
