Collective Roots, a food justice non-profit organization based in East Palo Alto, CA is excited to be hiring three new quarter time Americorps members through the Silicon Valley HealthCorps. We have one Garden Educator position and two Food System Change Agent positions available for hire immediately! Please see the position descriptions on our website for a thorough description of the responsibilities of these positions. Please note that although these are “quarter time” positions, they must be completed by the end of the Americorps service year (end of September, 2011), so they will amount to close to 20 hours per week of work.
A note for interested candidates from out of state: please thoroughly consider your willingness to move across the country for this part-time position before submitting an application and resume. Our staff have spent ample time in the past reviewing applications and interviewing candidates from across the country who, in the end, decided they were unable to relocate to the Bay Area for this position, and we would like to avoid this in the future if possible.
