New Council Member Application

We will be looking for 5 new HYPE Council members for school year 2016-2017. Any student grades 9-11 who attend a Minneapolis Public School is welcome to apply. Minneapolis Public School High Schools are: South High, North High, Edison, Patrick Henry, Wellstone, Roosevelt, Washburn, Southwest, and Broadway. 

What will you do? HYPE is a council composed of MPS high school students who support youth-led social action projects with financial ($) awards! Council members read award applications written by youth or youth and adults together, then we interview applicants, and decide who to award money to. We follow up with projects to see that they are implemented, and we organize an end of the year celebration for award recipients. 

Pay is $10.00/hour. We usually work 2 hours a week,  on Tuesdays from 3:40-5:40. We can help you with transportation if needed. Being part of HYPE is a great experience for buidling work skills, getting connected in the city, meeting new people, and putting on your resume!

Deadline for applications is Sunday, October 23, 2016.

We will contact selected applicants to come in and interview. With questions call: 612.668.4215
