White Eagle Memorial Preserve at Ekone Ranch Cemetery Internship Application
Thanks for your interest in becoming a White Eagle Cemetery Intern!
Cemetery internships run between 2-6 months, and we offer a modest grave digging stipend in addition to room and board - the lodging may be a trailer, or a room in the Ekone lodge, depending on the number of volunteers and staff on the land at any given time.
Cemetery interns are responsible for grave tending, grave digging, as well as support for burials, tours, and visits. In addition to cemetery needs, interns participate in ranch chores and other Ekone projects, including the kitchen, garden, and forestry, depending on the time of year. Hours vary greatly based on time of year, emergent needs, and ranch priorities, but typically most interns can expect to work 25-40 hours each week. Some cemetery needs are on call, last minute in nature. You will work closely with Ekone's volunteer coordinator Michelle, as well as Cemetery Director Jodie.
Before coming out, it's helpful for us to get a sense of who are you, where you're coming from, and what is enticing you about White Eagle work, so thank you for being willing to fill out this application. We'll be in touch soon!
