Student Cafeteria Chef & Manager
Work as a manager and chef in the student cafeteria where you will daily, with a team of students and volunteers, prepare whole food plant-based meals to feed hungry students and staff. All meals should be whole food plant-based. Every semester you will get a new team to train and work with, consisting of new students and Mission Volunteers, so good leadership skills and patience are crucial. We prefer a chef who has an understanding of plant-based nutrition and has experience with cooking for large groups. We require at least one year of work experience as a chef in a service kitchen. Having had a managerial role before is preferred, but not required. Housing and stipend are provided. This is a full time job with the work hours averaging about 40 hours per week.
Physician or Mid-Level Practitioner
See outpatients and lifestyle guests in the Wildwood Clinic, and treat them with lifestyle medicine, natural remedies, herbs, and if necessary conventional medicine. Work in a Christian mission field where taking time for your patients, and providing spiritual care are encouraged. You will be overseeing nurse practitioners. Medical professionals (including other physicians) regularly attend the Lifestyle Medicine Observer Program. Teaching classes for this program and having the medical observers shadow you is a possibility.
Plant-Based Assistant Chef
Join the team of chefs who, together with Mission Volunteers and students from the Center for Health Evangelism, cook plant-based meals daily for the guests at the lifestyle center. You will be working in the diet kitchen under the head chef, where you will follow a meal plan for the week, take into consideration dietary needs and restrictions guests have, and work with recommendations from the nutritionist. There will be a lot of direct contact with the guests, which are opportunities for you to reflect Christ to them.
Workers generally make a two-year commitment to the institution, working 40 hours per week. They are provided housing, utilities, financial assistance with car insurance, a discount at the Natural Food Market, lifestyle center, and clinic, an opportunity to invest into and get assistance from Wildwood’s health fund, a monthly food allowance, and a stipend.
Volunteers work a minimum of 30 hours per week for a period of one-six months, and receive housing and meals at the student cafeteria, but no monetary compensation.
Interns are graduates of the Center for Health Evangelism, LIGHT, or another affiliate school, looking for experience in one of our departments. Interns volunteer for up to 40 hours a week for up to six months. They receive housing, meals at the student cafeteria, and a monthly stipend.
Medical observers are medical professionals who have been accepted into the Lifestyle Medicine Observer Program, a month-long training in lifestyle medicine and natural remedies. Medical observers are not workers and therefore do not get any stipend or benefits, besides housing and meals at the student cafeteria.
