Mahalo to Cooke Foundation, Elsie H. Wilcox Foundation, Alu Like, and the Corporation for National Community Service for sponsoring our 2017 Summer Break Ag Internship session!
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.
