Stinner Climate Ambassadors

Stinner Project Flyer

We are seeking applications to participate in a summer internship focused on Climate Change Resilience in Ohio Agroecosystems, which will run from June 12 to July 27, 2023.

Sponsored by the Stinner Endowment from the Ohio State University Agroecosystem Management Program (, the program is designed for young adults (aged 18-24) interested in gaining hands on experience with best practices for regenerative farming and food system innovations to positively address our looming climate crisis.

Participants will gather as a cohort and participate in a series of training workshops, hands-on service learning projects with youth from diverse rural and urban communities, and direct experiences with innovative farmers during the 6 week program. The program will run for 4 days/week (Monday through Thursday). Participants will be certified as ‘Stinner Climate Ambassadors’ who can help build a bioregional regenerative network that brings together young people to share knowledge, expand awareness, and take the lead on transforming agroecological systems to improve climate resilience.

Each Climate Ambassador will receive a summer stipend of $2,500, along with housing, food and transportation during planned program activities.
