2024 Residential Internships at The Occidental Arts & Ecology Center

Website Occidental Arts & Ecology Center

Each year, OAEC hires a cohort of enthusiastic interns to live and learn at OAEC in 3 operational departments: Program Administration, Facilities, and Garden for 10.5 months.

Internships are approximately 24 hours per week. In exchange for their work, all interns are given a private, cozy place to live, community meals (including access to a fully-stocked kitchen, pantry, and on-site garden veggies and orchard) and use of all OAEC facilities (hot tub, swimming pond, etc.) Interns also receive free participation in the OAEC Permaculture Design Course, a $500 monthly stipend, and generous vacation and sick leave. Interns take part in the life of the residential community and participate in community cooking and chore rotations. There may be opportunities for additional paid work on site, though these are coordinated separately from the internship.

Applications due by November 1st, 2023.

Position begins end of January 2024 and runs through Mid-December 2024.
