Community Outreach Student Internship, Community Service-Learning, Faculty of Arts

#400 Arts & Convocation Hall, University of Alberta

Humanities 101 (HUM 101) is a series of workshops at the University of Alberta that is offered free of cost to individuals who might not otherwise have access to post-secondary learning due to various barriers such as literacy, poverty, mental health, and discrimination. To try and ensure as much equal access as possible, HUM 101 provides all materials, supplies, food, and transportation at no cost to learners. In the broadest sense, the goals of HUM 101 are to encourage critical thinking in everyday life as well as to inspire a passion for lifelong learning. The Intern will support the Humanities 101 Coordinator as well as the group.

HUM 101 is a responsive environment and, as such, requires flexibility. HUM 101 is a highly collaborative space; and therefore a balance continually needs to be struck between a wide variety of personalities who each come with unique ideas and needs. This can get complex and it is necessary that the Intern is able to work alongside and with a diverse group of individuals who are present with multiple abilities.


The internship has four main components:

  • Purchasing, coordinating and managing food preparation;
  • Supporting the day-to-day operations of HUM 101;
  • Participation with the learners in the classroom;

  • Attendance and participation at Tuesday evening classes from 6:30-9:00 PM;
  • Weekly travel to purchase groceries;
  • Weekly food preparation before class;
  • Set-up and monitoring of food before class as well as on break;
  • Cleaning up of food with help from program participants and volunteers;
  • Working with learners to create and produce final projects each semester;
  • Basic administrative duties such as emails, phone messaging, and class attendance;


  • Successful completion of two years post-secondary education;
  • Registration as a full-time student at the University of Alberta for the duration of the internship;
  • Successful completion of a minimum of one CSL course placement;
  • Good academic standing;
  • Requires strong interpersonal, time management and the flexibility to adapt to a dynamic environment;
  • Ability to problem solve, be creative and highly-organized;
