Foodshed internship news
Ogallala Commons, a nonprofit organization working in Texas and five other states, is partnering with towns or civic institutions in cities to create community internships in 2012. Through this program, motivated youth, college students, and adults work in summer or semester internships to carry out projects that add value to their local communities and institutions -- while interns gain skill development, paid work experience, and hometown career exploration opportunities.
A Seguin internship will begin Friday, June 1, and conclude Sunday, Aug. 12, with maximum stipend not to exceed $1,980. This internship will be supervised by Paul Martin, Pedro Schambon, and Paul Castillo.
This internship will offer work experience and skill building in the operation of community gardens, as well as the recruitment of partners and volunteers to utilize, maintain, and distribute the produce from the gardens. In addition, this internship will enable the intern to develop an understanding of local food production for farmers markets, organization of an emerging community food council, and key issues in community health.
For more information about Ogallala Commons Community Internships or to make an application for Seguin, contact Dr. Paul B. Martin, Ogallala Commons advisory council, at firstname.lastname@example.org or 830-372-0366.
In addition, you can contact Julie Hodges, Ogalla Commons education coordinator, at email@example.com. or 806-445-6075 or visit http://www.ogallalacommons.org/communityinterns.html to learn more about the program.
