Are you passionate about helping beginning farmers and ranchers (BFR’s) grow successful, sustainable businesses? Want to learn how to develop new resources, plan educational opportunities, facilitate events, and evaluate programs? CFAC is looking for an intern for this fall/winter to assist the Beginning Farmer and Rancher Program staff with projects including:
- Coordinate with farmers across Montana to promote on-farm training opportunities through the Farm Link Montana Work Link listings.
- Update existing resources and develop new resources for BFR’s accessing the Farm Link Montana website. Resource topics include farm business development, alternative tools for land tenure, and farm labor recruitment.
- Help enhance systems for tracking program participation and incorporating BFR input into future program plans, including Salesforce data management and regular meeting with our committee of BFR’s.
This position is a great opportunity to learn about and connect with farmers and farm support organizations across Montana. Work can be done remotely, though some office time will be required at our Missoula office.
Note: you will not be expected to lead these projects, but will have the opportunity to assist in development and management as appropriate. As an intern, you will have the opportunity to assist with multiple projects. We can offer a $1,000 stipend to applicants able to offer 10-20 hours/week between September and January.
To apply, email firstname.lastname@example.org with your resume and a note on your interest in the projects and any additional relevant information not covered in your resume. We will be reviewing applications on a rolling basis with a planned intern start date at the end of September.
