So I’m about to show you a job posting. We are working on getting an Earn-a-Bike program started in the Osborn Neighborhood in collaboration with the Detroit Eastside Community Collaborative as well as the Rails-to-Trails Conservatory and other groups.
If you are interested, just email me (firstname.lastname@example.org) a resume and cover letter explaining why you would be perfect for this job. You can also drop off or mail a printed cover letter and resume to:
The Hub of Detroit
c/o Jason X
3611 Cass Avenue
Detroit, MI 48201
The Hub will be hiring and training folks for this job, but it isn’t our program, just one we are helping with.
Again, this position is NOT a job at the Hub. It is a program that will take place in the Osborn Neighborhood near Outer Drive and Connor.
We highly encourage folks of all different types to apply for the job. Get a resume in by July 13th for consideration!
