Collaboration Accelerator

Collaboration Accelerator 5.0

The Collaboration Accelerator is a unique, 8-week professional internship opportunity that consists of cross-sector collaborative challenges that integrate applied creativity, innovative perspectives and community development. Each summer, we seek out the most engaged and creative students from different academic areas of study and bring them together to find creative solutions to real-world challenges posed by community partners. 2019 challenges will focus on education, literacy and issues of food justice and sustainability. 

We are no longer accepting applications for the 2019 Collaboration Accelerator.
