The Institute for Local Self-Reliance (ILSR) is seeking spring and summer interns to support our Composting for Community (C4C) initiative. We are advancing home, community, and on-farm composting as part of our mission to build healthy and equitable communities. Composting reduces food waste, cuts pollution, protects the climate, supports local food systems, and creates local jobs. It is an integral part of moving toward a circular, zero-waste economy and replacing the burn-and-bury wasting paradigm which disproportionately harms communities of color. Our strength is sharing best practices and elevating model programs and policies. We provide workshops, training, guides, outreach materials, webinars, networking opportunities, and more. See the initiative page for the team’s recent work.

This internship pays $16/hour.
