Residential Facilities Internship

This is a unique opportunity to live and work in a thriving land-based community and non-profit February through mid-December 2021. Interns participate in all aspects of community life and work 25 hours per week in exchange for a private cabin to live in, use of OAEC facilities, and participation in OAEC courses and programs. The facilities internship focuses on maintaining and improving the infrastructure at OAEC. Tasks vary from simple, quick repairs to multi-week construction projects, which in 2021 will include the reconstruction of our historic barn with burned down in Spring 2020. While much of what we do is functional in its approach, we do not pass up an opportunity to employ an artistic sensibility in our work.

We seek individuals who embrace living simply in a semi-rural community. Applicants should be flexible, energetic, comfortable in groups, and able to manage a diversity of challenges. Prior experience is not necessary, but a good sense of humor, communication skills, a positive attitude, and a willingness to learn are a must.

Deadline is November 1st, 2020. Early application is encouraged! Visit the internship page for more details and to download the application -
