Community Rebuilds Spring Internship Program
Are you graduating a semester early or a semester late? OR Do you just want to take a break from school and have a life-changing sustainable living experience?

Apply to be an intern with Community Rebuilds in Moab, UT, a unique affordable housing organization that replaces dilapidated trailer homes with beautiful, durable, energy efficient, and sustainable straw bale homes.

As an intern, you will live in the Moab community with your seven fellow interns for four and a half months learning about natural building by working with a natural building expert and general contractor to build the entire home! It is an unpaid internship, but your housing will be provided, as will a $100/month stipend to offset food costs. Otherwise you will just have a blast living in one of the greatest communities in one of the most beautiful parts of the country doing a great thing!

Our first build semester will take place this spring from January 15-May 30, 2010, though we are also accepting applications for the fall build from August 1 - December 15.

Our application and recommendation forms can be found on our website: http://www.communityrebuilds.org/. You can also find us on Facebook! Please let me know what other questions you have! I look forward to hearing from you!

Sincerely,
Noah Aptekar
