Food and Nutrition Internship: Now Accepting Application

As part of the on-going development of our Garden and Nutrition program, CORE/El Centro is now offering a 6-month Food and Nutrition Internship.

This volunteer position offers hands-on training and experience in a variety of urban food opportunities: beekeeping, composting, farmer's market management, food safety and handling, orchard maintenance, community education, nutrition and healthy cooking, youth education and activity coordination.  In addition to the organization-led activities and field trips, interns will complete an Individual Development project to gain a deeper understanding of a topic of their choosing.

The commit consists of 3-5 hours a week (one 3-hour shift April-October, additional 2 hour shift June-September).  We are seeking 3-4 interns, ages 15-21, who are excited about community health, urban agriculture, and are looking for a new leadership opportunity.

I am MORE than willing to work with schools or individual teachers to offer credit to the Interns (high school, college, or otherwise).

Interested applicants can contact me, 414-225-4267, or to submit a 500 word essay describing their interest in the internship and what they hope to gain from the experience.

Interviews will be conducted the week of March 25th, with final selections made by April 1st.

Thank you for spreading the word about this exciting opportunity!
