Looking for a meaningful way to make your mark on food justice? We’re not currently hiring, but will be soon. Below are some of the positions we’ve recently filled on our team:
Teach and Mentor Youth as a TFFJ After-School Program Mentor
Our part-time mentoring program for young adults is an integral part of the Teens for Food Justice experience. Under the guidance of a lead teacher and TFFJ staff, you will join our small team of mentors to facilitate a hands-on, empowering learning environment for middle school students in our after-school program in Clinton Hill, Brooklyn.
Mentors guide students through activities such as building model hydroponic farming systems, managing crops from seed to harvest, field trips to local farms, food justice advocacy projects, and hands-on lessons in nutrition, healthy cooking, and local food access. Mentors also work closely with students to strengthen their confidence and communication skills through service learning projects and community outreach events that provide their peers, families and the broader community with knowledge and skills to seek out healthy, affordable food options and take charge of their health.
Program & Outreach Internship
As Program & Communications Intern you will support and collaborate with our Program & Outreach Manager on various aspects of designing, managing and promoting the Teens for Food Justice program and its positive impact on the youth and community members we serve. This is a great opportunity for someone looking to support an organization that is an innovator in education and public health, while gaining hands-on experience with the tools and processes involved in nonprofit communications and program design & development.
