Get Involved

For those who want to get your hands dirty, consider applying for an internship or apprenticeship at Ampersand.

Internships are for folks who want to live at Ampersand for a period of time. Generally we have a month stay as minimum. Here are details about what we ask for and what we offer.

Apprenticeships are for folks who live close enough to come volunteer once a week and get some sustainability skills training. If you are interested let us know!
