We have an exciting opportunity that we recently launched, called Wisdom’s Agriculture Business Incubator (WABI) internship program. We kindly request and encourage you to share this with those who you think would be interested in applying to the program.
INFORMATION ABOUT WABI:
WABI will support the startup and development of 6 businesses by Native American (American Indian, Alaskan Native, Native Hawaiian, and Pacific Islander) adult interns to plan and create an agricultural/horticultural microenterprise business in rural Oregon. WABI will provide support services, including entrepreneur business development training, strategic planning, business plan development, and financial planning.
Interns will achieve training and create a business plan over the course of a 3-month PAID internship from March to June. Training will be provided through weekly seminars in our Portland classroom, a plant nursery south of Portland, and other field visits in Marion County.
In addition to a monthly stipend, interns will be provided 1:1 matching funds from a local CDFI for business start-up costs! Though the internship is only 3 months, interns will receive ongoing support for at least three years from the Wisdom Agricultural Coop as they continue growing their business!
