Farm Educator Internship

Bring The Farm To You is offering two Farm Educator intern positions this summer. Interns will work directly with the public, teaching summer programs. Their main summer programs are their Farm Animal Events and their Child's Homestead program. However, interns may have an opportunity to observe or take part in other programs as well. All the programs travel to their clients' locations, serving libraries, park systems, childcare centers, assisted living centers, and summer camps. Interns will arrive on location, help with set-up, interact with and teach the public, and assist with clean-up. Interns will also be asked to take pictures and video, interview visitors, and update social media accounts. Additionally, interns will gain experience working with and learning from farm animals, both by helping to guide and manage them at events, but also by working with them at the farm. One day per week, interns will be asked to assist on the farm in varying capacities. At Bring the Farm to You, they want their interns to become exposed to a fresh form of environmental education - one that shares important and meaningful connections with the community, right where they are. They bring the farm into cities and suburbs, helping people feel connected with the animals that help supply our food and fiber, and the skills and history of making-ones-own.
