FoodARC welcomes students into a dynamic, rich, and supportive learning environment. Community college and university students are encouraged to inquire about internship and other learning opportunities (e.g., co-op placements, dietetic internships, etc.).

Participatory leadership, experiential learning, and working with communities are cornerstones to student experiences. Students also pioneer approaches, such as employing photography and video for research and action, using social media, and trying innovative approaches for sharing knowledge. Each project has different opportunities, in addition to working across projects and activities.

At FoodARC, students are involved in many capacities – as graduate students, dietetic interns, volunteers, and research assistants. Student involvement creates and models inclusive environments where students find opportunities for personal and professional development. The students at FoodARC are passionate about food security issues in Nova Scotia and beyond and use this passion in their work with FoodARC projects and their unique research projects.
