- Food Justice Project Intern
We are currently looking for a Food Justice Project intern to work throughout the project by and large. Main intern projects may include organizing Teach-Outs/Ins, outreach for events and meetings, tracking participation at Teach-Outs/Ins, updating the webpage, prepping for meetings, and representing CAGJ at events in the community.
The intern will work with a team of CAGJ activists and directly with the two project co-chairs. Some office hours may be required, and the ability to work well independently will also be very important. In general, the CAGJ work environment is casual and friendly, but expects accountability and dependability from its volunteers to get things done! CAGJ is a volunteer run organization with one full-time staff. Interns play critical roles within and outside of the organization.
Many more opportunities available! Contact firstname.lastname@example.org for more info or attend an upcoming FJP meeting to get signed up.
