Volunteer and Internship Opportunity with Leonardo Academy

The Leonardo Academy has volunteer and internship opportunities to allow students to engage in the development and implementation of the Draft National Sustainable Agriculture Standard (LEO-4000).

This will be of particular interest to people working on sustainability for the supply chain, procurement, and food service. The goal for this standard is to engage the entire supply chain from producers to consumers in transforming agricultural production to sustainability.

These internship and volunteer opportunities include the development of numerous tools and information resources and promotion of the use of this standard. All these internship and volunteer projects will facilitate and promote use of the standard by agricultural producers, manufacturers, processors and retailers. 

Opportunities include projects in marketing, outreach, and research on agricultural sustainability topics. These projects are designed to draw on a broad range of student interests and areas of expertise.
