Cow Tipping Press believes in the unique power of youth to bring about generational change. We seek out talented college-aged leaders both to leverage your vision and social commitment and to provide new experience and training that will inform a life’s work in any number of fields. We run three semesters of programming yearly (fall, spring, summer) and, in general, hire on this timetable. Candidates from underrepresented backgrounds are expressly encouraged to apply.
Are you a literary, justice-oriented, adaptable and driven college student in the Twin Cities? Consider teaching with Cow Tipping Press! We provide structured yet flexible curriculum and support to lead your own writing class of trailblazing adults with developmental disabilities and help publish their work. 100% of teacher alums report they have fun on the job. Classes are held in a variety of Twin Cities locations (travel reimbursement available) and the average time commitment is six hours per week for six weeks. A stipend is offered for this position.
Ever wonder how the Cow Tipping Press adaptive writing program works? Watch as HFC members talk about their experience with this fun, creative program! And don't forget to join us at the HFC Artist Showcase where these people will read aloud their stories and sell copies of their book!

Cow Tipping Press also works with interns and volunteers. Usually, volunteer positions helping to facilitate our classes are for candidates who haven’t worked with Cow Tipping before, while interning is an extension of prior teaching experience. We’re open to proposals, however! Especially if you have specific vision or skills in visual arts, event planning, or communications.
Attention recent college grads! Are you—or do you know—someone who loves learning across cultural differences, is passionate about making the world a more equitable place, and isn’t afraid to get their hands a little dirty in the process? Consider our mold-breaking, full-time, fully paid Cow Tipping Fellowship. In the vein of AmeriCorps or New Sector, we’ll pair you with host organizations and coach you through a direct service experience last year’s Fellows described as “beautiful and humbling” and “a huge learning curve—which is exactly what I wanted.”
