The University of Maine at Farmington has a new initiative to develop opportunities for students in the Partnership for Civic Advancement. The program is intended to better organize and support community engagement activities for UMF students using "Quality of Place" as an organizing concept. The program focuses on a number action areas including sustainable tourism, landscape stewardship, local foods and arts and culture.
If your organization would like to offer a UMF student an internship opportunity (either this summer or during the fall semester), please go to the website and see if you qualify to be a Community Sponsor. You can also post your internship opportunity on the UMF website.
More information about the program can be found at: http://pca.umf.maine.edu/
