scope and duties
Every semester we are looking for interns who bring a positive attitude, strong work ethic, creativity and a passion for the work we do in our community. As a small organization, interns can be involved in all aspects of agency operations. We have opened our internship applications and are looking for help in the following areas:

- Our interns have a unique opportunity to be a part of this process and will work with the Staff Liaison and commission members to organize events, perform advocacy, and conduct research.
