We are now accepting Agriculture Internship applications for our January and April 2020 positions!
Are you looking to launch your agriculture or development career and work with smallholder farmers? You should consider ECHO's internship!
Since accepting its first intern in 1981, ECHO has guided the professional development of more than 250 interns. Interns gain access to a global professional network and develop lifelong friendships.
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 12, 2019. The internship application form can be found here.
If you have any questions about the program, please contact the ECHO intern manager, Brian Flanagan.
