SAUVIE ISLAND CENTER EMPLOYMENT OPPORTUNITIES 2022
We do not have any openings at this time. Please check back in early 2023 for both internship and employment opportunities.
Mission Statement: We are a land-based nonprofit that educates about food, farming and the land. We cultivate equity and food justice with our words, intentions and actions and prioritize service to under-resourced communities.
Organizational Overview: Since our founding in 2005, more than 20,000 elementary school students and community members have participated in programming at the Center’s home on Sauvie Island. The majority of programming is offered at no or low cost to under-resourced individuals, and children/families living in neighborhoods served by Title 1 elementary schools.
Our hands-on, educational programs include educational field trips and camps for elementary school students and service learning projects for BIPOC partners. Activities take place in our teaching garden, which includes a sensory garden, native hedgerow and (vegetable) Grow Lunch Garden. Most recently we partnered with Wisdom of the Elders to establish a First Foods Forest. This living classroom showcases the plants that were used by the island’s original indigenous inhabitants for food, fiber and medicine.
The Sauvie Island Center is committed to supporting diversity, equity, and inclusion among our staff, volunteers, and those we serve. People of diverse backgrounds are encouraged to apply.
