The Food Systems Project, a program of Lansing-based non-profit NorthWest Initiative is seeking interns to work in nutrition education and urban agriculture for the 2019-20 school year.  

Interns will support our programming in four elementary schools around Lansing, as we coordinate and maintain gardens and provide monthly hands-on cooking lessons and weekly after-school programs to the 1000+ students who attend the schools. These positions offer experiential learning opportunities working with diverse populations in gardens and classrooms. The positions are unpaid. 

Youth Nutrition Education Intern – These interns will primarily work in a direct education setting, supporting Kindergarten through Sixth Grade students who participate in our hands-on cooking lessons in classrooms, after-school programs and summer programs.


Urban Agriculture Garden Intern – Garden Interns will work in our four school gardens, supporting the maintenance and management of their production and other garden-related program efforts. This position contains many independently-completed tasks in our gardens, so scheduling is flexible.
