IMMEDIATE Opening for Farm-Based Educator Internship - Hawthorne Valley Farm, NY

During the school year classes from Waldorf and other private schools stay on the farm for one week. Twenty different schools participate throughout the school year. Interns and staff host classes from Grade 3 through 10 and help lead farm-based learning activities. Interns share organic meals with the children and supervise house and Dining Hall cleaning tasks. Interns are introduced to biodynamic agriculture and the view of childhood from a Waldorf prospective. Interns together with the staff are responsible for nurturing the physical, emotional, social and spiritual well being of each child during their stay at the farm.

The Fall Internship begins during the last week of August and runs until the 3rd week in November. There are three positions available. The interviewing process begins in January and continues until all positions are filled.

Compensation includes room and board (organic vegetarian meals) plus $750 per month stipend. By using hands-on teaching methods, the programs create a true learning experience for both the staff and the children. Applicants must be at least 21 years of age, enjoy working with children, have a love of the outdoors, animals and farm life!
