[FERNDALE] – Sullivan Renaissance is recruiting a limited number of paid community interns for the 2014 season. The primary role of the interns is to assist with care of gardens and other elements of community projects throughout the county.
Young people from outlying portions of Sullivan County will be needed as well as those from the more populated villages. Approximately fifteen interns will be hired. Salary is $10 per hour.
Applicants must be between the ages of 16-20 at the time of application. Applications are available online at: http://www.sullivanrenaissance.org/_doc/Intern_Application.pdf. They are due April 1. Final applicants will participate in a personal interview.
The work includes planting, watering, mulching, fertilizing, weeding, dead-heading of plants, and other related activities. Some interns also assist with administrative and organizational tasks such as clerical support, phone calling and fundraising activities.
In addition to supporting the gardening and project work of community volunteers, Renaissance interns participate in a leadership program where they engage in discussion on current issues, meet with local leaders and participate in a day of service.
The program is a collaborative effort between Sullivan Renaissance and the Sullivan County Center for Workforce Development. For more information contact Sullivan Renaissance at 845-295-2445.
Sullivan Renaissance is a beautification and community development program principally funded by the Gerry Foundation.
