According to the National Association of Colleges and Employers (NACE): “An internship is a form of experiential learning that integrates knowledge and theory learned in the classroom with practical application and skills development in a professional setting. Internships give students the opportunity to gain valuable applied experience and make connections in professional fields they are considering for career paths; and give employers the opportunity to guide and evaluate talent.”

Interns can be a great resource for nonprofits, but also under-utilized if the nonprofit is not prepared for them. Have you wanted to recruit interns, but do not know where to start? Do you have an existing intern program that you want to expand upon? How can you ensure that your intern program is beneficial for both your organization and the intern?

Join us for our first Masters' Program for 2018 with guest speaker Emily Schwing from Veggielution in San Jose. Emily will present on how Veggielution created their intern program, from recruiting, onboarding and assigning tasks, to ensuring participants gain valuable experience for the future.

Since 2008, Veggielution has utilized a unique community farm model that mobilizes volunteers to cultivate and grow healthy crops, which are then made available to program participants and other local residents. Their 6-acre community farm and gathering space is located in Emma Prusch Farm Park in the Mayfair neighborhood.

Emily Schwing is Development Communications Manager at Veggielution. Emily joined Veggielution in 2014 as the Outreach Coordinator as a member of the Silicon Valley Health Corps. In 2015, she became Veggielution’s Program Manager. In her current role as Development Communications Manager, Emily coordinates Veggielution’s overall communication strategy across a variety of media platforms. She is responsible for implementing the farm’s education and community engagement programs including Veggielution Cocina, a community cooking class series.
