The following internships areas are open until the February 11 application deadline: Appropriate Technology, Community Garden, Semi-Arid, and Rainforest. Find out more information about two of our internships below:
Focusing on the key themes of food, water, and shelter, the Appropriate Technology intern will experience how technology intersects with the world of food production, harvest, and storage. The Appropriate Technology Intern works closely alongside ECHO's Appropriate Technology Manager allowing for a one-on-one mentoring experience. If you are a fan of engineering and mechanics, this is a great opportunity to dig into the world of technology that can apply across cultures. A successful Appropriate Technology intern will have a strong interest in engineering, construction, or mechanics.
The community garden intern gets the best of both worlds. Not only does this intern get to train and work on ECHO's Global Farm, but they have a unique opportunity to engage in ECHO's own backyard: South West Florida's local community. In this internship, you will see your impact extend outside of ECHO's campus though community meetings, consultations, and school events. A successful Community Garden intern will have a strong interest in both community-driven gardening initiatives.
