  • Lead a “welcome to the neighborhood” campaign to greet incoming University and Augsburg
  • Help organize and increase participation in other selected community meetings, especially those convened by the City Council Member
  • Other tasks, including some data entry and research, as assigned.

Interns will be paid $12.09/hour for 10-20 hours per week, from June 4th through September 14th. Hours will be primarily evenings, with some weekends. More hours/week and employment later in the year are available.
