Summer Associates for Auburn University
 
 
 
We have three areas the Summer Associates can work in: Rural Health, Food Insecurity, and K-12 education. Program descriptions are below. Auburn University’s commitment to public engagement includes a strategic goal to partner with units within University Outreach, school districts, government, and non-profit organizations to provide initiatives specifically designed to prepare underserved K-12 students in the state of Alabama for college and or the workforce. In tapping into the human and intellectual resources of Auburn University and other partnerships, the Center for Educational Outreach and Engagement (CEOE) will provide academic, social, and cultural experiences to these students with the intention of leveraging their opportunities for success in college and society. The program provides hands-on activities for students including local field trips, sessions on character building, wellness, art, natural sciences, history, STEM, global awareness, and other interesting topics. Summer Associates working at this site may be doing a variety of things such as: working in the clinic, seeking volunteers, grant-writing, helping build and maintain partnerships with the community, continuing to develop the sites social media presence, community education and awareness events, and development of educational materials and resources the community can use. The final goal of the assignment is to reduce the health professional shortage that is adversely affecting underserved areas in Alabama. This position will be at the Chambers County Community Health and Wellness Center. They will also connect clients, students, faculty, and staff to existing resources in the Lee County area. The member will manage social media and create marketing materials for the program. They will create a virtual Volunteer Fair and research other innovative ways to promote all programs.
