About Gould Farm

Gould Farm is a therapeutic treatment program for people with mental illnesses. Located in the Berkshire Mountains of western Massachusetts, the program is designed to create a supportive and communal environment where clients can develop practical skills and gain a sense of independence. Staff and clients live and work together on the 650-acre working farm. Gould Farm also provides outpatient treatment in the Boston area for clients preparing for independent living.

Internships are available in the residential support, grounds maintenance, gardening, food service and administrative departments. Interns in residential support perform crisis management, teach living skills and assist with counseling and treatment planning. Other interns contribute to the operation of the farm in a range of areas, including planting crops, caring for the farm animals, cooking and administrative work. Placements are also available in residential and nonresidential programs in the Boston area.


Open to current college students and recent college graduates.
