Co-ops 101 for Interns

As part of the Kansas Cooperative Council's internship program, we host a "Co-ops 101" seminar for any interested Council member cooperatives' interns. This event is a great opportunity for students across the state to learn about the cooperative business structure, network with each other and share their experiences. Any Council member cooperative intern may attend this event. To hold a spot for your intern(s), contact the Kansas Cooperative Council at 620-802-0731 or council@kansasco-op.coop.

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.
