We are an intentional community and nonprofit educational center located on eighty-seven acres in the foothills of the Cascades. Full-time residents currently number approx. 50 adult members (ages 25-65) and 5 children (ages 2-12). We are committed to stewarding this land and developing a sustainable culture, recognizing and honoring the spiritual, aesthetic, and emotional as well as practical dimensions of sustainability. We offer educational programs in Permaculture and personal growth, as well as community internships in many of our program areas. We host conferences, retreats, and workshops presented by organizations that share our vision.
Lost Valley Educational Center is looking for six (6) interns to join our intentional community to participate in a 12 week immersive learning internship opportunity.
This is your chance to learn and work alongside some of the Pacific Northwest’s finest system thinkers. This educational opportunity offers front row seats in observing the process, procedure, and our sociocracy-inspired governance systems that have allowed our community to flourish for over 30 years and gain some experience living in community.
We are looking for 15-18 hours per week with a commitment of three months in exchange for tent camping or dormitory-style housing. This internship does not offer financial compensation. Start date: Mid-May (start date for some roles can be flexible)
If accepted into the internship program, you are temporarily joining our Meadowsong Ecovillage community. This gives you an opportunity to practice Nonviolent Communication and to study how the principles of Permaculture permeate all areas within the community.
