Intern Program

Due to staffing changes and funding, the Kerr Center will not be soliciting applications for interns for the coming summer. Thank you for your interest.  We hope to have an intern program in future years.

The Kerr Center offers student internships to individuals wanting hands-on experience in sustainable agriculture.

Student activities revolve around Kerr’s sustainable livestock and organic  horticulture demonstrations, education, and research.

These internships are designed to appeal to college students and are structured with time for reading, personal research projects, and opportunities to attend educational events.

Both summer and extended internships may be available. Internship positions are limited, so prompt inquiries are encouraged.
