CKC's Internships are designed for high school and college students with an interest in urban agriculture. Students who complete a CKC Internship are eligible for Student Service Learning (SSL) hours, college credit, or a small stipend (please note, the stipend is reserved for second term interns). Our Interns give back to their community, learn a life skill, get outside, work with their hands, work alongside people with diverse backgrounds, contribute to their local food system and help support a small nonprofit.
Each internship session is 12 weeks. Interns are expected to dedicate 4 hours per week for the entire 12 weeks. Many interns stay on for more than 12 weeks.
