Associated tasks will include:
Selected Youth Programs Interns will receive a stipend of $10/hour for up to 100 hours of work, professional development learning opportunities, and academic & career planning assistance. We aim to build this internship in a way that:
- holds youth accountable for working on projects from home, with an opportunity for exposure to their regional and/or national IAC office setting, should the situation permit;
- focuses youth efforts on the coordination of their region's first Native Youth Leadership Summit, while offering latitude to expand on projects related to their personal interests, through exposure to all aspects of employment by the Intertribal Agriculture Council;
- provides preference to youth that have attended a past youth summit, sanctioned by the Intertribal Agriculture Council or the Indigenous Food & Agriculture Initiative, and to those students pursuing a spot at the 2017 IFAI Leadership Summit for Native Youth in Food & Agriculture (https://law.uark.edu/service-outreach/youth-summit.php)
We look forward to reviewing your internship applications. Internship applications will be open until May 1, 2017, or until positions are filled. Please contact Kelsey Ducheneaux, should you have any questions regarding this application: email@example.com or 605-850-4079.
