Ever thought about living and working alongside farmworkers who are radically changing the agricultural industry? Want to learn more about grassroots organizing with diverse communities for systemic change? If you or someone you know is interested in an opportunity like this, then look no further and consider applying to intern in Immokalee!
The Alliance for Fair Food is seeking interns to live and work at the epicenter of the Campaign for Fair Food this spring. Interns should be flexible to organize with an array of Fair Food allies including, but not limited to, university and high school students, communities of faith (at both a local and national level), and food justice organizations from around the country.
Intern responsibilities include:
- Development of campaign strategy together with the CIW and allies
- Regular communication with the Fair Food network
- Office assistance
- On-the-ground support for members of the Immokalee community
A minimum commitment of 3-5 months is preferred and the start date is flexible. Interns receive free housing and a modest montly stipend.
Given our commitment to developing a diverse leadership, we strongly encourage people of color, women, working-class, LGBTQ, gender non-conforming, and differently-abled people to apply for the intern positions.
The deadline for the spring internship application is December 29, 2017. If you have any interest or know someone whom you think may be a good fit, please forward this to them and reach out to us! You can write us at firstname.lastname@example.org or give us a call at 239-657-8311.
We are looking forward to receiving your application!
