Interns Learn Workforce Readiness
Updated: May 15
We are halfway through this spring’s Internship at Elderberry Wisdom Farm, and are really starting to form a community.
In the Health and Wellness class, participants have learned about multiple facets of wellness such as physical, mental, emotional and spiritual aspects of their wellbeing. We have incorporated indigenous values and concepts into our learning and are continuing our journey down "the river" of self awareness to community transformation.
In our Workforce Readiness class, we are covering the four major qualifications that employers say are necessary and lacking in the workforce:
How you show up
How you communicate
How you work with others
Your ability to problem solve and think outside the box
Interns are exploring their own personal values and boundaries and how to honor those in the workforce.
