About Project Sentinel

Project Sentinel is a nonprofit civil rights organization that serves Northern California and investigates allegations of housing discrimination through Fair Housing Testing. Fair Housing Testers expose discrimination by posing as prospective tenants by phone or in person and reporting on their experience.

Who can be a Tester?

  • Attend a tester training and complete a practice test.
  • Pass a criminal history check.
  • Be reliable and committed to civil rights.
  • Be able to write and submit objective reports within 24 hours of completing a test.

People with fluency in Spanish, Vietnamese, Chinese, Tagalog, Hindi, Hmong, Farsi, and Russian are encouraged to apply.

Do Testers get paid?

Testers are used when needed and earn a stipend. Stipends are typically $15 to $25 for a phone/email test and $20 to $55 for an in-person test, plus mileage and expense reimbursements.
