Join Our Team

Refresh Appalachia is an exciting place to work! We have a great team, do interesting projects, provide lots of training, and are always trying new things. Crew Members in our program follow our 33-6-3 training model. For 33 hours a week they learn production, marketing and business skills by working at our farms. They also spend 6 hours a week taking community college classes and 3 hours working on life skills such as financial management, parenting, and healthy cooking. Work hours count towards college credit, and after 2-2.5 years in the program, participants graduate with an Associate’s Degree.

Crew Chief and Staff positions are also available from time to time.
