Systemically evaluate our current web presence, develop, and implement a plan to help us reach new audiences. With direct input from staff the student will assist the Network in increasing their social media presence.

Interns should have an interest in supporting refugees and the local food system. Interns must be able to show respect for and be willing to learn from persons from other cultures. A successful intern will be able to use critical thinking and problem solving to help coordinate programs. Interns should be able to work independently. Knowledge of local food resources, harvesting techniques or food preservation techniques are not necessary but would be a benefit.
Interns at Iskashitaa establish a weekly work schedule with their supervisors. Interns will need to be available for programming specific to their internship. For example, the food workshop intern will need to be present during the food workshops. Often interns are work on coordinating one of our food programs. Therefore, the tasks needed to coordinate that program will need to be done before it occurs.
Interns will be directly overseen by Iskashitaa staff who runs the program the intern will be participating in. The Harvest Intern will be under the supervision of the Harvest Coordinator, the Food Preservation and Food Workshop Intern under the supervision of the Food Workshop Coordinator, etc. Each of the Iskashitaa staff has unique backgrounds, interests, experience, and education. On staff, we have persons who are passionate about and have years of experience in reducing food waste through harvesting and composting, reducing the human carbon footprint, seeking justice for refugees and asylum seekers, and making food products from locally grown produce.
Current Staff includes:
There is no stipend, but students interning at Iskashitaa will gain experience in a cross-cultural setting and will learn about local food and how it is used by persons from other cultures. Likewise, interns are encouraged to take harvested produce home. If students use their personal vehicle for Iskashitaa events, they may also turn in a receipt for gas reimbursement.
