ReWild Long Island has announced that it will be offering student internships and community service opportunities in East Hampton for its second summer.

The 2024 Summer Program to Fight Hunger and Climate Change includes volunteer work this summer in organic vegetable harvesting, regenerative food production, sustainable landscaping, pollinator garden design and composting.

Locations and partner organizations include Share the Harvest Farm, LongHouse Reserve, Surfrider Village Green and Methodist Lane Bioswale, East Hampton Compost and East Hampton High School Pollinator Garden.

These hands-on activities encourage a sense of connection among teenagers and the ecosystem. Furthermore, ReWild offers students the unique opportunity to engage with local environmentalists, gaining insights into community-driven environmental initiatives and discovering ways to contribute to future efforts.

ReWild welcomes high school students and rising freshmen to apply for either a role as a student intern or student volunteer. Applications are open from April 1 – May 15, 2024 and can be found at ReWildLongIsland.org/summerprogram.

Student volunteers are required to work a minimum of 30 hours (including training), and student interns are required a minimum of 60 hours (including training) and will receive a stipend of $300 at the conclusion of the program. All participants earn community service hours.
