Our summer interns  typically spend most of their time helping the children with their animals to prepare them for EXPO Esperanza.  In addition to helping with their livestock projects, the interns also teach classes during summer school on various static and stage projects.  Some interns are assigned specific projects outside of EXPO serving the mission of The Fatted Calf, depending on the skills and interest of the intern.
