Urban Adamah – San Franscsco
This internship offers you the opportunity to build your skills in a particular specialty (art, cooking, music, or farming), teach children in a spirit of mindfulness and joy, and live in a community with other college-aged students.
Each intern will work 25 hours a week at camp and on the farm in exchange for room and board and an end-of-summer stipend. Interns live on the farm itself in a modern building with a large, well-stocked kitchen and plenty of living space. Interns will share a room with one other person. In return for room and board in the Bay Area, interns lead daily activity blocks in their area of specialization. Each block is an hour long and interns work a maximum of two blocks in a day. Interns help with children during all-camp activities, including the daily morning circle and end-of-week Shabbat service. Some intern specialists may be expected to help counselors in small group activities as well. There is also ample time to brainstorm, develop and plan new activities, and collaborate with peers.
