The Lyson Center has a growing number of projects in which students and others may get involved. These projects could be short-term (a few hours) or longer-term (up to 6 months). We operate on a very small budget, and therefore most opportunities are unpaid, except through a college's work-study or intern program. However, we do offer professional development opportunities, such as learning a new skill and networking with others in the food movement.
For a college student who has received a Federal Work-Study award. This position typically includes 5 to 10 paid work each week during school semesters.

Generally for a student or young professional looking for a more in-depth experience working with JAFSCD or NAFSN as an editor, social networker, or doing other program-related work.
