Internship details


Internships at White Violet Center for Eco-Justice at Saint Mary-of-the-Woods, Indiana, can be life changing!

Field work and study. Mostly working in the field with a portion of each week reserved for study in your area of specialized interest (alpacas or garden).

Must complete a project. Interns should have a strong desire to learn.

Must be physically fit — capable of lifting at least 50 pounds, use a shovel and wheelbarrow easily, and work in a variety of weather conditions. Previous experience with animals is preferred, but not necessary to apply. Above all, a willingness to learn and ability to self-direct.


Three months, six months or 12 months.

Start date:



Five days a week with occasional weekends, 35-45 hours a week total.


A private dorm-style room, farm produce, one paid meal per day in the cafeteria and a household budget for other meals, $150 monthly stipend, and access to WVC workshops. Even for those not in the fiber arts internship, there are opportunities to learn fiber arts such as weaving, felting, knitting and spinning, as well as environmental advocacy, community engagement and spiritual growth.
