National Junior Angus Assoc. extends internship opportunity

The National Junior Angus Association has an internship opportunity for college students looking for experience planning events and working with youth across the country. The program allows students to spend eight months - January through August - assisting with junior programs and shows and traveling to a number of events. American Angus Association Director of Junior Activities Jaclyn Upperman says the association is looking for a detail-oriented, outgoing individual who would enjoy being part of the Angus team. The internship is aimed toward college sophomores, juniors and seniors. Applicants must be enrolled in an ag-related major and have the ability to move to the association's headquarters in St. Joseph, Missouri during the internship. The deadline to apply for the paid internship is October 1st.

Upperman says the extended time period of the internship allows the selected intern to take more ownership in their projects and watch their efforts grow into something successful. Responsibilities will include daily in-office tasks, preparation for shows and conferences sponsored by the National Junior Angus Association, working with the Green Coats: Coast to Coast program and more depending on the intern's interests. The intern will also assist with the NJAA website, Directions newsletter, National Junior Recognition Program and other programs available to NJAA membership.
