Eco-Justice Center

Youth Farm Corps Crew Leader

May - September 2019 • Racine, WI

What I liked

This internship really helped narrow my path of what I want to possibly do as a career. It was so much fun and I learned more than I ever could have wished for. I made a lot of wonderful connections and friends while working here and learned about a large array of things such as how to properly plan and plant a garden, how to lead a group of young women, and the importance of certain environmental issues, and so much more. There was quite a lot of freedom concerning decision making and new ideas, that encouraged me to improve the program, even if little by little. This really was the perfect internship for me, and anyone who is lucky enough to be selected for it will have an amazing experience.

What I wish was different

The program is still quite new with only a few years under its belt, so the organization of the allocated time working and learning respectively is being experimented with, as well as the specific duties of the Farm Corps crew.


Anyone who is thinking of applying for this internship must have a great work ethic and love for the outdoors and animals. There is a lot of manual labor with this job, but the things you learn and the experiences you have are well worth it. Even if you don't want to do the internship, there are so many opportunities to volunteer at the Eco-Justice Center and do something that fits your style.
