You will be immersed in a culture of facilitative leadership within the larger team that ranges from 5-10 people. This team supports communities as they collaboratively envision and implement projects. Our main community building strategy involves the creative reclamation of public space via street paintings, permaculture gardening, and natural building. These projects culminate in in early June but there tends to be ongoing projects until the end of the summer season. For a personal reflection of a past intern, click here.
