Summer Internships in Tacoma

Hi all,

Green Thumb

Green Thumb kids, 2013. Aliyah Simcoff (back center) and Libby Shafer (back left) are recent SOAN graduates.

If you’ll be in Tacoma this summer, here’s an opportunity to consider. Two SOAN graduates, Aliyah Simcoff and Libby Shafer, work with the Northwest Leadership Foundation’s Eastside Green Thumbs project, and they are actively seeking college interns for the summer. The Eastside Green Thumbs project is a summer gardening camp that works with Roosevelt Elementary School to engage youth in in planting, growing, harvesting, purchasing, selling, and cooking food in school garden sites that go unattended in summer months. This program is part of a broader effort to address poor nutrition, low academic achievement, and the lack of environmental stewardship.

If you’d like to learn more, you can learn more about the project here, and you can contact Aliyah directly at asimcoff (at)
