Sustainable Harvest’s Summer Fellowship Program hosts fellows at their offices around the world–either at their headquarters in Portland, Oregon, or in their origin offices in Lima, Peru; Oaxaca, Mexico; or Kigoma and Moshi, Tanzania. Fellows receive a stipend and work alongside staff on projects related to business communications, impact measurement, development funding, and other tasks that give them a broad understanding of their mission and practices as a social enterprise and an opportunity to develop professionally.

One of the strengths of Sustainable Harvest’s fellowship program is the opportunity it provides for some fellows to engage in work with Sustainable Harvest in a more permanent position. Sustainable Harvest is proud to have at least two former fellows as a part of its current full-time staff.

To give you some insight into the “coolness” factor of this up-and-coming social enterprise, the November 8 issue of the New York Times features Sustainable Harvest President and founder, David Griswold, in its annual Giving Section. The article, ‘Socially Conscious Companies have a New Yardstick,’ explores ‘the B Corporation movement and how businesses with a social mission make decisions to maximize their impact. This year, Sustainable Harvest was named a ‘Rockstar of the New Economy’ by B Corporation–read more about Sustainable Harvest as a B Corp here.’
