Introducing our Interns

Thank you to all who applied for CORE/El Centro's first annual Food and Nutrition Internship.  We are excited to announce our three interns for the 2013 season.

Chloe, 15, is a freshman at Milwaukee School of Languages and is eager to build on her experiences through Hawley Environmental School.  She is excited to continue learning more about the connection between organic fresh produce, nutrition and health. During the internship, she will be focusing on Community Education and Outreach, from recruitment and marketing for our classes to photo documentation and evaluation.

Samantha, 15, is a freshman at Ronald Reagan High School and is passionate about community service.   Aspiring to one day be a teacher, she is excited about this internship as an opportunity to continue working with young children, practicing her Spanish skills and learning more about organic gardening and nutrition.  For the internship season she will be acting as Farmer’s Market manager, coordinating outreach, vendors and education at the rooftop market set to begin June 1st.

Dulay, 20, is a sophomore at MATC and an advocate for healthy living through organic gardening and healthy eating.  He is excited to incorporate sustainable methods of gardening into his own practice and teach others about nutrition and the importance of their food choices. His internship will focus on management and education around the rooftop Beepod – a sustainable, community-friendly method of urban beekeeping.
