Radix Needs Volunteers – Earn RSSW Credit

Looking to Build a Garden Volunteer Squad!

Want to get your hands dirty?  Break a sweat? Hang out with baby goats? Spend time helping create beautiful green spaces for public benefit in the South End and Arbor Hill? Learn about gardening?  Share your knowledge with others? Increase access to fresh food?

Join us!


AVillage, Trinity Alliance, and the Radix Center are looking to build a group of interested people to help us beautify and maintain the 7 gardens we collectively manage.  We are actively engaged in addressing the many issues around hunger, health, and sustainability in the South End of Albany, which is officially labeled as a “food desert.” We will be holding many group work days, and are also looking for motivated volunteers to help out on other days.  The gardens have various educational and community food access uses – all of them are awesome.

If you are interested in joining up – please send an email to with the following information:

  • Hours/week or month you are willing to help out
  • Availability – days & times
  • Gardening experience/knowledge level
  • Level of physical contribution
  • Carpentry skills?  Tools?  (Arbors and raised beds – or whatever you dream up!)

Donations of $, seeds, plants, trellises, pots, manure, compost, etc.  always welcome!

We’re all working hard – and WE NEED YOU!

International Internships

Dear Colleagues,


I am writing to share an exciting partnership that benefits SUNY students system-wide and is managed by SUNY Potsdam. In today’s highly competitive workplace, it is increasingly important that undergraduate students add an international dimension to their resumes for future employment and/or to their applications for graduate school.  Recognizing this need, SUNY Potsdam Study Abroad Office and the Experiential Education Offices have collaborated with international internships

provider Global Experiences to place students in established businesses, institutions, and organizations in ten global cities.

These internships offer beneficial on-the-job experience and offer students the chance to live and work with people from a different culture.  Further, these international internships can build confidence and provide direction for future career goals. The internship program can off students full-time credit and are available to all majors.  They range from 8 to 12 weeks in length and are available during the fall, spring, and summer semesters.

Participants receive a customized internship placement with a host employer, personalized career coaching based on the Clifton StrengthsFinder® as well as a professional development webinar series focus on a variety of skills and components of the experience: resumes & cover letters, interviewing skills, online personal branding, intercultural understanding and how to prepare for living and working abroad.

Global Experiences is offering a promotion for students who wish to enroll this fall wherein their program fee will be reduced by $500.
