Hi everyone!
If you missed the original deadline to apply for one of our career development activities over winter break, you are in luck! We still have a few opportunities that are available, and one in particular that you might like – see below:

Hannah Grose ’13 – Gleaning Coordinator, South Central Community Action Programs (career field: Social
Work, Non-Profit/Public Policy) Location: Gettysburg, PA. Shadowing Description: If the student shadows on
Tuesday, we will attend the Local Food Policy Council meeting, activities other than that will depend on the day.
They may include grant research, deliveries or pick-ups from farms, gleaning, meetings, or traveling to farms and
low income food distribution centers in the area. Available Date(s): Because my job does center around
agriculture, it can be very variable, especially in the winter. Coordination will be easier the closer we get to the date.

You can apply for this one, or for any of the others found here by Nov. 19:
