Amir Internship Program

Amir, an educational non-profit organization that recruits and trains young adults to serve as garden-educators at summer camp. If selected, these young adults (now called Amir Farmers) are placed at one of the partner camps, and are guided along the summer with help from staff and curriculum, which focuses on teaching lessons of food justice and environmental stewardship. Along with being able to impact hundreds of youth in a camp setting, Farmers gain skills in teaching independently, working with youth, and management.

If selected for the program, Amir Farmers participate in a week-long training seminar at Capital Camps in Waynesboro, PA in May. Farmers are provided a salary from the summer camp, and all room & board and travel accommodations are taken care of by both Amir and the camps. Interested students can visit amirproject.org to apply.
