About

LiveBeyond teaches farmers in the community improved methods of agriculture via our demonstration farm. This farm ranges from poultry production, a fruit orchard, meat goats, to a vegetable garden. Covering 5 acres of the southern end of LiveBeyond's base, LiveBeyond is looking for interns to oversee the day-to-day management of the farm ensuring that the farmers are provided the best development services possible.

Each intern will work on site for 6 weeks overlapping with the following intern during their 6th week. The interns will be guided through their daily responsibilities, given an assessment at the end of their internship, and will leave with a certificate of appreciation from LiveBeyond.

Summer 2015 Experience

I spent the summer after my Sophomore year of college with Live Beyond in Haiti. It was one of the most challenging and rewarding experiences of my life. As a 19 year old I was in charge of a team of Haitian construction workers as well as the agricultural staff. I had to manage and complete assignments with both teams. It took a great deal of effort and commitment, but I managed to complete the majority of the tasks assigned to me.

Over the course of the program I learned how to
Delegate: Resources and assignments.
Prioritize tasks
Improvise and implement strategies
And most importantly how to lead regardless of age or experience.
