Work and Learn with Yestermorrow

Mission & Objectives

Yestermorrow’s Internship Program is dedicated to providing a unique educational experience working and living as part of the Yestermorrow community. Interns learn a variety of skills by means of hands-on experience, and at the same time are able to take a variety of courses offered by talented faculty from all over the country.  The Interns provide Yestermorrow with critical support in the day-to-day operations of the school while participating in hands-on learning opportunities both in and out of formal classes.


Yestermorrow is committed to providing equal employment opportunities for all people and values diversity and inclusiveness. People of all backgrounds, ethnicities, gender identities, and abilities are encouraged to apply.

Design/Build Internship

Learn design, construction, alternative building, and woodworking skills in an internship position. Interns help with campus construction and maintenance projects, assist with coordination of classes and support staff and instructors in the ongoing operations of the school. During their time at Yestermorrow, interns take two weeks of classes taught by top architects, builders, and craftspeople from across the country. In addition, interns serve as assistants in our Certificate Programs and lead the completion of client and campus projects. Experience with design and/or construction is helpful but not required. On-campus housing and meals are provided. We have 3 design/build internships available for 2021. Each intern will have the opportunity to serve in a class support role in one of our Certificate Programs scheduled for summer 2021 (Certificate in Residential Design and Construction, Tiny House Design/Build Certificate, and the Natural Building Certificate).

We are accepting applicants from across the country but international sponsorship is unavailable. All interns will be expected to follow the Vermont Travel Restrictions before coming to campus. This will likely be the only Design/Build Internship opportunity for 2021.
