Siembra Nebraska provides internships for local high school and college students in urban agriculture, multimedia, business, construction, public health, and more.
In our 5 different internship programs, interns are able to develop leadership skills through on-the-job experience and mentorship opportunities.
Being a part of Siembra Nebraska made me develop my passion and skills. I looked forward every day to learning something new from my peers.
