Rural Community Serviceship Program

Teaching & Engagement, 2013




This project resulted in RFI Student Serviceship! Engler Agribusiness Entrepreneurship Program and Nebraska Human Resources Institute heavily recruit student participants interested in entrepreneurship and leadership development. Students are placed in rural communities in teams of at least two. These teams assist the community with a project specified by the community leadership. Students are expected to participate in community service activities outside of their serviceship project.
