Hometown Internship Program

The Shickley Community Foundation Fund is announcing a hometown summer internship. This new opportunity will connect young people who have gone off to college by involving the students in their hometown! The Nebraska Community Foundation is partnering with the Shickley Community Foundation Fund to offer college students a paid internship to serve their hometown community during their summer break. 

A hometown intern is a current undergraduate college student who lives at home for the summer. The intern will discover and document the assets and abundance of their home place. They will help to facilitate conversations with community members regarding these assets and opportunities, and they will co-create opportunities to mobilize these local assets to increase community quality of life. This opportunity will be specifically tailored to our local area.  It is our hope that through this internship the individual will create a deeper connection to their community.
