Cooperative Internships

With the following goals in mind, the Council began its Internship Program in 2012:

  • Introduce young adults to careers in co-ops
  • Cultivate new co-op leaders
  • Teach a "Co-ops 101" class for summer interns employed at cooperatives
  • Promote rural Kansas and the overall ag industry

The Council's role is to assist our members in creating meaningful internship programs. The Council will represent your cooperative by exhibiting during the Kansas State Agri-Industry Career Fair. At this event, we have the opportunity to engage the state's top student leaders.

Interested in providing an internship at your cooperative? Contact the Kansas Cooperative Council at 785-233-4085.
