Rising Stars in Southeast Iowa

We are looking for interns to help with local food projects next summer!  Our projects include educating youth about eating and growing local foods, helping to market area farms and farmers markets, and working in the community to increase awareness of when foods are in season and why it's important to EAT LOCAL!

We are looking for students from various fields of study, including Design, Agriculture and Human Sciences.

This is a paid internship for eligible Iowa State University students. Teams of two to four work under the supervision of Iowa State University Extension and Outreach regional directors and staff during mid May through early August. Teams are housed in different regions of Iowa working with not-for-profit organizations, local food systems, families, agencies, and/or communities and economic development organizations.
