Education Programs Internship

The Corvallis Environmental Center’s internships located at SAGE and Avery House Nature Center offer opportunities to connect youth to the natural world with activity based, hands-on environmental learning. As an Education Programs intern you will assist CEC staff with teaching Farm to School and/or Nature Education programs to small groups of students ages 5-14. These programs will take place both virtually and in-person. Interns help the Lead Instructor with teaching lessons, group activities, child management, and lesson planning. 

Programs take place primarily during school hours, Mon-Fri 9am-3pm, and may range from 1 hour to a full day. Though preference may be given to individuals who are able to participate in-person, fully remote internships may be available.

Education Program internships are great for anyone interested in environmental, science, health, or food/agricultural education. 

Sustainable Agriculture Internship

The Sustainable Agriculture intern plays a crucial role in the success of the SAGE Garden. This is a great opportunity for those seeking hands-on experience in small-scale agriculture, local hunger relief, educational gardening, sustainability, permaculture, and connecting people with the food that they eat. As a part of the SAGE team, you will help to grow the 5 tons of food that we donate each year to aid food insecure individuals and families in the local community. We value the input and ideas of SAGE interns in shaping the garden and enhancing its educational function.

Interns should be available for at least 2-3 shifts​ per week during TBD times.

Independent projects may take place outside of these hours.
