Galloping Grace Youth Ranch in Rio Rancho, NM is looking for volunteer UNM Sustainability Studies student interns to oversee youth programs for children ages 4-11 during our weekly summer camps at the Ranch. Volunteers will work with 12 to 18 year-old Junior Leaders to build curriculum and educate the younger children. There is a week of training during the last week of May followed by 6 weeks of camp (though camp is closed the 4th of July week). Interns are welcome to work all or some of the 6 weeks. 

Galloping Grace Youth Ranch is a fully sustainable non-profit ranch that diverts scrap food from grocery stores and food banks from going to landfills and uses it to feed our animals, including pigs, cattle, chickens, goats, lamas, horses and rabbits. Meat processed from our animals is donated to food banks and pantries. The earth is impacted, as food in landfills creates gases that are warming our planet. We divert over 2 million pounds of food from landfills to battle global warming and help feed the hungry in NM. Most importantly we educate children on sustainable agriculture and develop children into leaders and future ranchers or farmers. 

For more information, or to apply, please contact Mark Schmit at 303-521-3190 or
