The CISC Summer Experience Internship is a paid career readiness and workforce development initiative focused on increasing the number of future socially and politically aware federal employees, financially astute agricultural/food/fiber entrepreneurs, and agriculturally aware activists and policy advocates. As such, students will interface with various professions and sustainability specialties during an eight-week period from early June through late July. They will be assigned to farmers, agricultural specialists, cooperative extension agents, community-based organizations, and/or other professionals to learn about different techniques, practices, and courses used in sustainable development.
First-year participants will work on-site at one of the CISC’s managed sites in Macon, Montgomery, and/or Dallas counties.
Second and third-year participants will work off-site at partner sites both in and out of state based on their career path.
