Internships, That Is
ASAP runs an extensive internship program throughout the year, accepting more than 15 interns into our organization annually. This spring, we're offering the following unpaid internships: Local Food Campaign, Growing Minds
, Communications, Graphic Design and Production, and Operations. Spring interns will work with us from early January through May 2014.
We're sad to say goodbye to Bridget Kennedy as our Local Food Campaign Director, but we're excited she'll stay involved in WNC's local food movement with her new role at Katuah Market.
AND, we're thrilled to welcome Molly Nicholie
to the position! Molly has been a member of our Growing Minds
team for almost 10 years and bring lots of experience to the role. Reach her via her same email
or at 828-236-1282.
In the next few weeks, we'll announce a special opportunity detailing how you can help us transform the food system. Keep an eye out for more from us via snail mail and email...
