Thanks for considering a student internship with us! We love students of all ages and consider ourselves to be life-long learners. Our student interns love the outdoors, love the garden, and love providing respite and recreation for care-partners and people living with physical and cognitive disabilities.

High-school, Bachelor’s and Master’s level internships are available. Please contact us if you are seeking to gain experience in communications, community outreach, marketing, social work, hospitality services, sociology, psychology, education, special education, music/dance/drama/art therapies, horticulture, horticultural therapy, dementia care, disability care, spiritual care, accessible design, universal design, event management, program management, program administration, and/or social entrepreneurship.
