Virtual Hispanic Outreach Ambassadors

A mano-Y-ola LLC and Natural Resources Conservation Service Partnership Program

Virtual  |  Summer & Fall  |  Part-Time  |  Paid



The purpose of this internship is to recruit high-achieving and dependable, bilingual, Hispanic students from the United States mainland and Puerto Rico to work in a virtual learning network. The program uses a curriculum developed by mYo designed to enhance the Natural Resources Conservation Service mission and outreach objectives among Hispanic communities. The virtual internship is an excellent opportunity to increase bilingual interns' knowledge of agricultural conservation, preservation of natural resources, agribusiness, leadership, and USDA programs and outreach services.
