Allegheny Mountain Institute 18 month Fellowship Applications Available

      Posted On: November 9, 2018

Now in its eighth year, Allegheny Mountain Institute’s fully sponsored 18-month Fellowship prepares and empowers individuals to become teachers and ambassadors for a more vibrant and accessible local food system. AMI Fellows spend six months in immersive training on our mountain farm campus (Phase I) and one year in service work with AMI and food related non-profit partner organizations (Phase II).

AMI’s Fellowship creates strong leaders who successfully work to build more cohesive community food systems. AMI alumni go on to work as local food coordinators, farmers, school garden facilitators, market farm managers, food systems educators, and advocates for sustainable food systems.
