How awesome is working at Just Harvest? Let’s ask outgoing intern, Josh Berman:
As an intern with Just Harvest, I have been provided an incredible opportunity to enhance my professional skills while addressing issues that I am passionate about. I’ve had the chance to work on issues of poverty and hunger through many different channels, and a diverse and active staff ensure interns have ample opportunity to engage in a variety of projects.
Working in an organization that balances direct services for clients with advocacy and policy work is truly unique, and has given me a chance to expand my understanding of how non-profit organizations are able to function as a vehicle for community change.
Finally, Just Harvest staff strike a balance between supervision and independence. Supervision is crucial to any young professional’s development, however I am truly thankful that Just Harvest has entrusted me to complete my projects with a degree of autonomy. As I move forward with my career I leave knowing I am well prepared to take on the many challenges of this work, and I thank Just Harvest for preparing me so fully.
– Joshua Berman, Organizing Intern 2014-15
