Sanctuary One is a care farm located in the Applegate Valley of Southern Oregon. At Sanctuary One we provide a variety of educational opportunities for the public. Our programs include service learning, field trips, and public tours. As an intern you will gain experience in using the Next Generation Science Standards, curriculum development, handling animals in a group setting, working with adults, school-aged children, and individuals with special needs. We highly encourage interns to take on a project that is specialized to their interests and career aspirations. Other responsibilities include mucking stalls, feeding, grooming, and helping with daily animal care.
Internships run throughout the year and can last for six weeks to three months, and we offer part-time and full-time positions. We provide comfortable shared housing in our fully furnished farmhouse, on the beautiful 55-acre farm for full-time interns. Interns are responsible for their food and transportation, but Sanctuary One does provide some food staples.
Skills required for the internship are:
- An interest in education
- Work well with others
- A willingness to learn
- Enjoys interacting with animals
