META (Retention Programming)

Community Outreach

Interface with community and social service leaders, coordinate outreach programs, and maintain a network of volunteers.

Assessment

Marketing and Publications

Develop strategies to market La Casa programs and assist with publications.

Student Internship Opportunities (Unpaid)

La Casa Cultural Latina Internship Program provides students and opportunity to undertake creative and challenging assignments that provide a greater understanding of Student Affairs and the Latina/o community. Interns will work on programs that promote the Latina/o identity and unity through educational, social, and cultural programs provided to students and members of the university and Champaign-Urbana communities.
