In an effort to support the development of our future farmers and agriculturalists, we launched a pilot for 2015 Winter Break for 10 high school agriculture students to participate in a paid Ag Internship with KUGA Agriculture on the west side of Kaua`i. See the write-up from The Garden Island here.
Since the pilot, we have provided 27 local students with 117 weeks of paid agricultural internships across Kaua`i! Our goal is to offer 100 weeks of paid Ag Internships to local high school and college agriculture students annually. In addition to receiving a paycheck, students also receive a recommendation letter and internship evaluation for their future career portfolio.
Farmers: If you’d be interested in hosting a service-learning field trip with our Ag Interns on your farm, submit your information to us by completing this simple form.
Mahalo to generous donors who helped to support our sessions: Cooke Foundation, Elsie H. Wilcox Foundation, Hawaii People’s Fund, AmeriCorps, Alu Like, Eleanor Snyder, Kim Wright, Robin Arrington, Erik Burda, Koke`e Lodge, and Foundation for Sustainability & Innovation.
