Description

As a FTF Field Worker you will live simply, work "in the trenches," meet locals and learn the ins and outs of the local Appalachian culture. Our two-phase service approach begins with an "immersionship" in which you will work at a local foodbank as a way to immerse into the Appalachian way of life while serving those in desperate need. Using the connections you make and cultural insights from the immersionship, you will then have the opportunity to identify and assist local "impresarios" or brilliant visionaries who have ideas to build and create. From beginning to end this opportunity is about listening, building relationships and allowing creativity to flow.
