What past interns have to say:

“The Greyston Bakery Marketing & Communications Internship was an unparalleled experience. It was the perfect fit for my interests in marketing, food, and social enterprise. From my first day as an intern I was welcomed into the office and given real responsibilities that made an impact within the company. I have a completely new perspective on the business world since being at Greyston; I feel really lucky to have worked for a business that is not only successful, but is also filled with kind and hardworking people who are devoted to giving others a second chance. I know that everything I have gained from this internship will lead me to a career I can be passionate about. If I could, I would do it all again!”
- Sara, Summer 2014 Marketing & Communications Intern

“The Greyston Bakery Sustainability Internship was a great fit for me! I was given real responsibility and I truly felt that my efforts were important to the business and appreciated by the team. I am grateful for the opportunity to contribute to Greyston’s social and environmental missions and I know that I have gained a lot from this internship, including an understanding of how for-profit businesses can actually be really good for the world. I would recommend that individuals who have an interest in social enterprise and who are prepared to lead several sustainability projects apply; I couldn’t have asked for a better experience!”
– Stefanie, Summer 2014 Sustainability Intern
