Representatives from St. Paul Neighborhood Network will be on campus on Monday, April 8th from 10:00-12:00 in the lobby of the Christensen Center. They are interested in recruiting seniors for full-time AmeriCorps positions.

Teach technology for social change to people who are immigrants, low-income, experiencing homelessness, and youth!

We are the Community Technology Empowerment Project and we bridge the “digital divide” for new immigrants and low-income communities in Minneapolis and St. Paul. CTEP AmeriCorps members help youth and adults use basic technology to better access social, civic, educational and economic opportunities.

We are an AmeriCorps program. AmeriCorps is a network of national service programs, made up of three primary programs that each take a different approach to improving lives and fostering civic engagement. Members commit their time to address critical community needs like increasing academic achievement, mentoring youth, fighting poverty, sustaining national parks, preparing for disasters, and more.

Our cohort is made up of 35 members, and they teach digital literacy skills at various sites all across the Twin Cities. They work in libraries, nonprofits, employment centers, or schools for adult learners. They help people build the skills necessary to obtain employment, and improve their civic and social opportunities. A member in this position would tutor and teach workshops, create programming and materials, be part of a cohort, work together on a civic engagement project relating to issues of digital inclusion, and build relationships.

This is a full-time position, we are currently recruiting for the 2019-2020 year, and we’d love to see you come visit us!
