Columbus/Albion Teens Taking Part In NCF Hometown Internships

LINCOLN- Thirteen students are being welcomed to their Greater Nebraska hometowns for summer internships that will further the community-building work of local Nebraska Community Foundation affiliated funds.

The 2020 NCF Hometown Interns include Haley Faust, of Columbus, who is a student at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln, and will work with the Columbus Area Future Fund on a project in cooperation with the Columbus Area United Way to connect, learn, and work with those impacted by financial insecurity. Also included is Patricia Cleveland, of Albion, who is a student at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln. Cleveland’s duties for the Boone County Foundation Fund will include speaking with and learning from community leaders around the state, developing programming for Boone County’s highly successful Cardinal Kids Club, nature and tourism resource development, and help with the Big Give.

As part of the program, interns will help facilitate conversations with community members regarding community assets and opportunities, and will co-create opportunities to mobilize these local assets to increase community quality of life.
