We are now accepting Agriculture Internship applications for our January and April 2019 positions!
Are you looking to launch your agriculture or development career and work with smallholder farmers? Then the ECHO internship might be for you.
Since accepting its first intern in 1981, ECHO has guided the professional development of more than 245 interns. Interns develop lifelong professional networks and friendships. The following are reflections from previous interns:
ECHO’s Internship is a paid, 14-month 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 and appropriate technologies.
The internship program provides hands-on training on ECHO’s tropical demonstration farm in Florida. Interns contribute to ECHO's global ministry and develop basic skills in small-scale agriculture, animal husbandry, appropriate technology, public speaking, managing volunteers, and more. Interns also participate in seminars and field trainings in a wide range of agriculture and community development topics. ECHO will select four agriculture interns during each round of applications.
Applications will be accepted until August 1, 2018. The internship application form can be found here.
If you have any questions about the program, please contact the ECHO intern manager, Brian Flanagan.
