The Excelsior Planning Collaborative seeks an intern to provide administrative support to the Collaborative’s Strategic Planning Consultant as the neighborhood undertakes a comprehensive strategic planning process. This project will provide the intern with first-hand knowledge of a community-driven strategic planning process. The intern will be needed for 8-10 hours per month for the period beginning in October 2012 and concluding in May 2013. It is essential that the intern commit to the entire eight month process, attending one early evening meeting per month.
The Excelsior is historically a working class and immigrant neighborhood. The greatest assets of our community, which is within supervisorial District 11, are its ethnic, language and age diversity. A consortium of community based non-profit organizations, schools and faith-based organizations in the Excelsior neighborhood of San Francisco are coming together to form the Excelsior Planning Collaborative, which will work on a grass-roots community strategic planning process.
