The Lyson Center has a growing number of projects in which students and others may get involved. These projects could be short-term (a few hours) or longer-term (up to 6 months). We operate on a very small budget, and therefore most opportunities are unpaid, except through a college's work-study or intern program. However, we do offer professional development opportunities, such as learning a new skill and networking with others in the food movement.
