Spring/Summer Internship at SECIA.
(For Urban Studies students or others requiring an internship for graduation)


SECIA (Southeast Como Improvement Association) is a neighborhood non-profit 501(c)3 organization that represents the 5,600 residents of the Southeast Como neighborhood in Minneapolis.  We currently have an internship opportunity to work as the Como Green Village Intern for the Spring semester 2011.  This internship would focus on these current projects:


  • The MIMO (Move-in/Move-out) neighborhood “free store” that we piloted last year and plan on continuing this May in partnership with the U of Mn Reuse Warehouse.
  • Como’s “Earth Month” community activities, during the months of April-May.
  • Student outreach projects, working with other student volunteers, neighborhood liaisons, & service learners on engaging the student population with respect to our projects and activities
  • Help with other SECIA projects such as our upcoming office move, Como Cookout event planning and many community gardens and garden projects.


We are looking for a self-motivated person who can work with minimal direction.  We prefer students who currently live, or have lived, in the Como neighborhood, but this is not required.  Proficiency with computers, online calendaring/documents, and social networking is a plus.  This internship would ideally start in mid-March and carry over into the summer months.  Hours are flexible and we can work around your class requirements/schedule.  We are a small non-profit, so you will be able to input a lot of your own ideas into the position and your creativity is welcome. The internship is unpaid.
