Know someone with a passion for youth and a passion for rural community development? This may be their opportunity to become the first-ever SPARK community engagement coordinator.

Partnering with the University of Minnesota Extension, SPARK is excited to be hiring a Community Engagement Coordinator to advance the goals of the Pathway to Student Success in the Greater Itasca Area.

SPARK’s mission drives us to work together to build a stronger future for the young people of the Greater Itasca Area.  The Community Engagement Coordinator will work to build relationships across the region allowing us to more effectively match community resources with community needs. If the young people in your community are looking for more activities after school, SPARK’s engagement coordinator will connect them with adults and resources that can help them make it happen.  If your community already has strong programs that support youth, SPARK’s engagement coordinator will work with them as they strive to be stronger.  The SPARK engagement coordinator will help us build a stronger future together.

A detailed job description and instructions on how to apply are posted on the University of Minnesota Extension website.
