KOUNKUEY DESIGN INITIATIVE is currently seeking an intern to assist our community team in the Eastern Coachella Valley. This is a fantastic opportunity for a highly motivated and creative self-starter to work directly with two local food cooperatives. The individual would help oversee and execute the food cooperatives’ food selling operations at the 2019 Coachella Music Festival. The position is based in our Eastern Coachella Valley office in North Shore, and will require attendance at the Coachella Music Festival in Indio for both weekends towards the end of April.
The Coachella Festival Intern will work closely with the Planning and Community Departments to support our economic development programs, in particular the two food collective businesses of Delicias Laguna Azul and Antojitos Mexicanos Oasis (AMO). The Coachella Festival Intern will support the project manager and community associates on planning, coordination, communication, implementation, and management/oversight of the 2 events (both weekends at the festival). The intern will also be a point of contact with the Coachella Festival caterers, Best Beverage Catering (BBC) who are contracting Delicias and AMO to sell at the event. This position requires some heavy lifting and physical labor. This position will require up to 12-hour days on two consecutive weekends with intense periods of activity in a festival setting. Overtime compensation will be provided for work days that are over 8 hours.
The intern position is a full time (40hrs a week for 3 weeks) from April 1st to April 23rd. The time previous to festival days will be dedicated to preparing for the events, having regular check ins with the two groups and KDI, and ongoing communication with BBC.
