Greatly expanded opportunities for paid internships, academic internships, community engagement, and full‐time professional opportunities will result from an aggressive employer development campaign. Greatly expand community engagement opportunities including internships, service learning, and off‐campus paraprofessional experiences working in local schools, community‐based organizations and other non‐profits.
