ANNOUNCING FOOD JUSTICE INTERNSHIP FOR HIGH SCHOOLERS

Are you passionate about food justice? Do you want to gain hands-on experience as part of a small team of teens working for a food justice campaign? Are you a Jewish teen who is interested in putting your beliefs into action?

Apply to our year-long Food Justice Internship. We are now accepting applications for high school juniors or seniors to work on a campaign for food justice as part of a collaboration between Abundance Farm, Congregration B'nai Israel and the Pioneer Valley Workers Center in Northampton..

Over the year, interns will receive social justice training, as well as leadership development and group building skills. They will learn about the history of food justice and community organizing. Interns will also serve as integral team members working on a major food justice campaign happening in Northampton over the next year. They will experience justice work by doing it, supported by a mentor and working with staff from both Congregation B'Nai Israel and the Workers Center.

This program will be around an 8--10 hour time commitment/ month. This is an unpaid internship, during which high school students will gain hands-on organizing skills, social justice training, and build deep connections with other young activists.

Application deadline is September 16th, and application can be found here. If you have any questions, please contact Grace Oedel at grace@abundancefarm.org.
