ECHO recently opened the application process for the July and October, 2017 intern 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 global demonstration farm in Florida. Interns develop basic skills in small-scale tropical 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 3 agriculture interns and 1 appropriate technology intern. The internship applications will be accepted through February 1, 2017.
