Summer 2022 Internship at St. Isidore Farm

Guerin Catholic’s school vegetable farm is recruiting interns for the 2022 season! Any Guerin Catholic student, from incoming freshman to just-graduated seniors, is eligible! This is a potentially life-changing summer experience, where students learn the value and the skills involved in growing great food for a great mission.

This can help build up a solid work resume, will satisfy all 22-23 service hours ,and can earn one elective course credit! It is also designed to be a flexible experience, so that students can still enjoy their summer vacation.

How it works:

  • Students agree to accumulate at least 60 hours of farm time throughout the summer (June 6 thru August 9)
  • This is about six hours each week, if averaged across the whole summer
  • Students sign up for regular farming time slots, usually during weekday mornings
  • Flexible: Students can still have part-time jobs, go to athletic practices, go on a family trip, etc.

Benefits:

  • Build an expertise when it comes to working on a farm and growing great produce
  • Build up an impressive work resume with solid references
  • Gather experiences for college and scholarship essay material
  • Be part of a community of students working toward a great mission
  • Satisfy all service hour requirements for 22-23 school year
  • Earn one elective course credit

This is offered as a summer school course, where students can earn that course credit through this experience. To register for the internship that includes the course credit, please contact Mr. Haselhorst at zhaselhorst@guerincatholic.org and include student’s name, grade, and email address in the email.

If the student will be a graduated senior, or for any other reason is not seeking the course credit for this internship, he or she can still register for the internship by sending Mr. Haselhorst an email at zhaselhorst@guerincatholic.org.
