Subject: Alliance for Education Internships for High School Students
Please forward this to your scholars, recruits or students (or teachers and counselors) in Seattle high schools–for any student you know who attends high school in Seattle Public Schools.
For more information or questions, please email Duron Jones, firstname.lastname@example.org.
I’m Duron Jones, the Student Engagement Coordinator for the Alliance for Education. In an effort to include student voice in the activities that the Alliance for Education, Seattle Public Schools, and Seattle College Access Network (SCAN) makes in regards to college access the Alliance for Education is looking to hire unpaid high school interns.
Students will inform the decisions of college access providers, post-secondary institutions, Seattle Public School district central office officials, and Seattle government officials. They will also gain the opportunity to participate in professional development at no cost to them, community service hours, and much more.
Students are able to complete the application directly online and submit it or they can print it and mail it in. There are two positions in which we are hiring. One being the Access Intern position, dealing with scholarships and technology programs. The second being the Ambassador position dealing with student voice, leadership, and programs. The links to the applications are listed below and more information about the positions can be found in their packets.
Thank you and have a nice day.

A June 9 letter of intent from Seattle Center Director Robert Nellams to members of the Northwest Native Cultural Center pledges his commitment to working with NNCC organizers in hopes of making “the historic vision [of a Northwest Native Cultural Center] come true and … building a long-term partnership.”
“This truly has the potential to be a huge win-win for the Native American community, Seattle Center and the public at large,” Nellams goes on to say. His letter came in response to a letter from NNCC president Roger Fernandes, which outlined the group’s ongoing plan to seek a permanent home for a Seattle-based Native cultural center.
The idea of a Native cultural center at Seattle Center was introduced last year as part of the proposal process undertaken for redevelopment of the south Fun Forest. The RFP Review Panel, in considering the Native project, concurred with the proposal’s assertion that there should be greater representation at Seattle Center of “Seattle’s heritage and the Native people from whom its name comes.”
“We are encouraged by Mr. Nellams’ interest in exploring a Native cultural venue at Seattle Center,” says Fernandes (Lower Elwha Klallam), a Native artist and storyteller. “We believe the Cultural Center will be a unique place for all the Coast Salish people, where they can present and interpret their own stories through a multimedia experience. The facility will also help fulfill Seattle Center’s mission to provide attractions for people of every heritage and background.”
As currently conceived, the venue has been redesigned to have 14,800 square feet on three levels. The longhouse-style building will include a historical introduction to the region’s Coast Salish people, a gallery featuring high-quality Northwest Coast artwork, and a special event space with a stage and seating area. The facility will also house a gift shop, classrooms and Seattle’s first café featuring Northwest Native food.
The building will open onto a landscaped terrace with a teaching garden of indigenous plants and trees.
The preliminary drawings were developed by Johnpaul Jones, project architect, whose firm Jones + Jones designed the much-acclaimed National Museum of the American Indian in Washington, D.C.
Nellams emphasized his support for the facility’s core values, stating they are “ones that Seattle Center can and will embrace”:
- To provide a facility open to all
- To offer an authentic cultural experience
- To enrich Seattle’s legacy
- To provide meaningful green space and environmental education
- To link Seattle’s past and future.
Since January, NNCC organizers have incorporated and received nonprofit status in Washington State, and are finalizing 501(c)(3) federal tax exemption status. The group continues to strengthen ties with the community, including an event held June 11 at Seattle Center in conjunction with Spirit Walk. Many prominent individuals and organizations have proclaimed support both for the idea of a cultural presence and a Native facility at Seattle Center. More information on the project is available on Facebook .
