We are incredibly fortunate to have passionate and engaging interns working with us on all aspects of our programming. Some work on maintaining our science laboratories and assisting teachers at partner schools. Some have been behind the scenes to help with graphic design for our curriculum and event materials.
We could not do what we do within our budget without the tireless efforts of our interns.
We offer internships year-round, open to current college students and recent graduates. NY Sun Works is currently looking for spring interns available to work February through May, with the possibility of hours in June if the intern is available. Spring internships require a minimum 10 hours per week, though interns who are available can work more hours. Internships are unpaid at this time, however many students can earn academic credit for their time at New York Sun Works. The right candidates must show an interest in education, urban agriculture, and urban sustainability and must be NYC based.
This spring we are offering the following internship:
Hydroponic Greenhouse Farming
Interns will be working directly with our Greenhouse Manager/Bioresource Engineer in farming production and maintenance at our sites in Manhattan and Brooklyn. Interns will be involved in every step of the growing process including, harvesting and distribution, as well as maintenance of the growing systems and space. The internship does not require previous hydroponic growing experience, but applicants should discuss their interest in hydroponic farming in their cover letter. Interns must be able to keep the same weekly schedule.
Please send your cover letter and resume to Ashley King at firstname.lastname@example.org. Applications will be accepted on a rolling basis.
