Employer Description

The Field Semester’s mission is to provide a transformative, place-based learning community for young people from varied backgrounds and lived experiences where they will gain the inspiration, sensibilities, and skill-sets to help build a world in which society and ecology thrive, equitably and sustainably. We aspire to be an immersive semester program that reaches high-school students at a crucial moment in their personal and academic development. Each semester, our innovative program will bring 45 high-school juniors and seniors from diverse communities to live, work, and learn together on the land. Over sixteen weeks, through an exciting mix of intellectual study and experiential learning, students at The Field Semester will deepen their understanding of the social and biological ecosystems we share. Their days will be spent engaged in rigorous academic classes with lots of field-work, restoring and stewarding the watershed in which they will live, and managing the day-to-day operations of the campus including growing food, cooking, and maintaining the facilities. We aim to equip graduates with the tools they need to thrive as just, sustainability-minded leaders in every community they call home.
