Vocational Boni-Bell Farm Internship (Full Time May-November)

Vocational Education Internship at Boni-Bel Farm (Full Time/May to November) Room/Board/Stipend Interns guide therapeutic/recreational activities such as maintaining a flock of organic chickens and preparing fresh eggs for sale, making gift baskets, bee-keeping, harvesting vegetables, maple sugaring, and assisting in special events such as Saturday Farm Markets. Experiential 1:1 vocational sessions guided by interns are designed to help individual students following New York State Career Development and Occupational Studies (CDOS) standards. A key goal in special education is to prepare students for adulthood by providing career development and vocational training. Agricultural settings offer a rich opportunity to build such life skills. Boni-Bel Organic Farm & Country Store, just a half-mile from the Brewster campus, offers opportunities for Green Chimneys students to learn and perfect a trade of their interest. Our professional farm staff at Boni-Bel models sustainable agricultural practices, and students are involved in the operation of the farm including organic vegetable/fruit production (from cultivating soil to seed propagation and planting to harvesting), landscaping, bee-keeping, maple syrup production, small machine operation. Students practice retail and customer service skills at the Country Store while selling products (vegetables, Maple syrup and crafts made at the farm or locally) to the public. Must be 21+ to apply.
