Are you planning to use agriculture to make a difference around the world?
ECHO recently opened its internship application process for the January and April, 2017 positions. ECHO’s Internship is a paid, 14 month long program. It provides an opportunity for professional and personal growth for college graduates pursuing a career in international community development, with a focus on small-scale tropical agriculture or appropriate technologies. The internship program provides hands-on training on ECHO’s tropical demonstration farm in Florida. Interns make a major contribution to ECHO's global ministry and are exposed to various aspects of this ministry. Interns develop basic skills in small-scale agriculture, animal husbandry, appropriate technologies, public speaking, managing volunteers, and more. Interns also receive regular training and field trips designed to enhance these skills and provide exposure to a broad range of agriculture and community development topics. During this round of applications ECHO will select 4 agriculture interns. The internship application form can be found here and will be accepted through August 1, 2016. If you have any questions about the program please contact the ECHO intern manager, Brian Flanagan
