Penn State Rural Sociology survey needs current or former farm intern/apprentice input
August 21, 2012
The Rural Sociology Department at Penn State University is collecting feedback from workers' experiences. To date, internships and apprenticeships have played an important role within the sustainable farm community, yet the public knows little about the people who work in these programs and their impact on growing sustainable food. Their study will focus on the work that interns and apprentices do on farms in exchange for training and alternative forms of compensation.
If you are a current OR former farm intern or apprentice, please contribute a few minutes of your time to complete their survey.
And please forward this survey to anyone working as an intern/apprentice who may wish to participate!
Are you working as an intern or apprentice in Pennsylvania?
They are also conducting interviews with interns and apprentices working in Pennsylvania. Email Stephanie at firstname.lastname@example.org or Kathleen at email@example.com or call 719-671-3509 to participate in the conversation about internships/apprenticeships on sustainable farms.
