Urban REAP: Renewable Energy and Agricultural Project
In partnership with Mission Waco and Urban REAP, students may intern for 20-40 hours a week during June and July in one or more of the four initiatives: composting, aquaponics, the garden center, and education.
Urban REAP addresses the impact of environmental degradation at the community level. Whether it be air pollution, contaminated water, or readily-available nutritious food, the poor are disproportionally affected. Our community therefore cannot separate how we treat the environment from how we treat our sisters and brothers beside us and around the world. Urban REAP exists to create a more sustainable future by providing our community with positive actions that help care for our creation as well as our neighbors. Summer interns will be working to implement Urban REAP programming and projects while growing their understanding of community service. By participating in any of these four initiatives, you can help create a cleaner, healthier, and more empowered community for everyone.
Interns with Urban REAP will develop leadership skills, a capacity for service to the community, and a research question that is based in community work.
