Seven paid part- and full-time interns receive training on RiverFIRST, the MR|DI, Minneapolis Park Board, and River Is. As a team, they represent the MR|DI at more than 35 community events during an intense nine-week internship. As individuals, they participate in and help shape one of the most significant city-building efforts in their lifetime. Internships are managed in partnership with STEP-UP Achieve, a City of Minneapolis jobs training and experience program of the City of Minneapolis and Minneapolis Public Schools.
