Dear Friends,

 

As October draws to a close, I'm excited to share with you some of our upcoming events planned for the month of November. Please keep reading for information about a prenatal and neonatal care seminar, a community resources fair and a food drive I'm co-hosting to benefit your neighbors in need through Care for Real.

 

I've also included information about a paid internship opportunity with the General Assembly. Illinois has one of the nation's oldest and best legislative staff internship programs. Many of its alumni have gone on to make outstanding contributions in state government and other fields. I would encourage you to share this announcement with anyone who has completed college (or will graduate by next spring) and has an interest in politics and public service.

 

 

Sincerely,
Heather Steans

Paid legislative staff internship - apply by March 1, 2016

 

The Illinois Legislative Staff Intern Program (ILSIP) accepts applicants from all academic backgrounds who have completed either their undergraduate or advanced degree. Using the Capitol as both a workplace and a classroom, the program offers interns the opportunity to work as professional legislative staff members with either the partisan leadership of the Illinois General Assembly or the Legislative Research Unit. ILSIP interns work full-time for 10.5 months for a monthly stipend of $2,100, along with a tuition waiver for four graduate credit hours. Interns also attend a mandatory academic seminar conducted by UIS faculty. The program is intended to broaden the perspective of those planning academic, business or government careers so they may carry into their chosen fields an understanding of the legislative process.

Applications are due in the ILSIP office by March 1, 2016 and final selections and placements are announced late April to mid-May. Internships begin August 16, 2016. For more information, call 217-206-6579 or click here.

Dear Friends,

 

It can be difficult and confusing to obtain all the resources and services you need as a senior citizen. That's why Ald. Joe Moore, Rep. Kelly Cassidy, Commissioner Larry Suffredin, several hospitals and community groups and I are sponsoring the 49th Ward Senior Resource Fair next Wednesday, Oct. 7. In one location, you can renew your state identification card or get a new ID, meet with social services and health care providers and even enjoy a free lunch and entertainment.

 

I also hope to see you at Apple Fest, where our office will sponsor kids' activities. A 28-year tradition in Lincoln Square, Apple Fest is a fun, fall celebration for the whole family. Please keep reading for more details on both of these events.

 

Sincerely,
