This unique 1-6 month residential internship opportunity is an immersive dive into many aspects of Horseshoe Farm’s nationally renowned year-long Community Health Gap Year Fellowship. The volunteer service and learning internship is intended to give students hands on experience with Horseshoe Farm’s relationship oriented approach to improving the health and quality of life of our vulnerable neighbors while contributing to a broader framework of community health. Participants will have opportunity to:
Live in, learn from, and learn to become an active member of one of our three wonderful local partner communities (In Alabama – Greensboro and Perry County, and in California – Pomona).
- Provide direct volunteer service to children, adults living with mental illness, seniors, and other vulnerable adults.
- Volunteer and collaborate with community partners in healthcare, education, and many other parts of the community.
- Work on a team with Site Directors and other extremely talented and committed Fellows and Interns.
- Receive ongoing mentorship and teaching and participate in weekly reading and discussion seminars at Horseshoe Farm.
The internship may fit within your undergraduate experiences as a “study away” program, a capstone or thesis program, a work/volunteer for credit program, a Co-Op program, a “Jan Term” or Summer Internship program, or another path or program that exists or you create at your college/university. The program can be designed as a 1 month to 6 month immersive residential experience and is available at our Greensboro, Perry County, and Pomona Sites. Comfortable shared housing is available to undergraduate residential interns. Please see bottom of this page for contact information.
