Work-Study, Volunteer, and Intern Opportunities
The Lyson Center has a number of projects in which students and others may get involved. They 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, they offer professional development opportunities, such as learning a new skill and networking with others in the food movement.
Please contact Duncan Hilchey if you are interested in any of the opportunities below. In all three cases, knowledge of Word, Excel, PowerPoint, Adobe Creative Suite, Wix, and/or any CMS is helpful. Excellent communications skills and self-direction are essential.
For a college student who has received a Federal Work-Study award. This position typically includes 5–12 paid hours of work weekly during the academic year and/or 30 paid hours weekly during the summer.
For non-work-study eligible students or those who seek an opportunity to spend a few hours a week or month doing tasks such as online research, graphic design, data entry, or website development.
Generally for a student or young professional looking for a more in-depth experience as an editor, social networker, or other program-related work.
