Green Chimneys is a special education school that is located on a farm and surrounded by nature in Brewster/Carmel, NY. We are home to over 300 farm animals, horses and unreleasable wildlife. This Leir Foundation internship offers two tracks for the intern to choose from: FARM/GARDEN/NATURE EDUCATION AND INTERACTION and EQUINE EDUCATION AND INTERACTION. Each track is part of the same internship and involves interacting with the children and using nature in the growth process.

The Garden internship option offers an exciting opportunity to participate in a growing integrated nature-based setting that brings together farm animals, gardening, environmental science and education for the 40 students attending Green Chimneys Carmel School. The campus is located on 350 acres of pristine woodlands, part of which is designated as a New York State Model Forest, and includes a small farm animal area and an organic garden. This internship offers an integration of animal care and gardening with immersion in an innovative outdoor education environment. 

In the Equine Track, children learn how to care for the 18 horses, donkeys and ponies, and to manage their behavior and emotions to benefit their relationship with the animals. Interns have the opportunity to support children who have been unsuccessful socially or academically as they begin to experience success in the particularly supportive surroundings of the equine program.

This internship is for commuters and will last from September to January. A small stipend is included biweekly. Applicants can email at employment@greenchimneys.org with their resume or go to www.greenchimneys.org and learn more!
