As a CAEP host, you will have the opportunity to work with some of the best young adults from around the world, who are looking to increase their hands-on experience in fields of agriculture. Based on your specific business needs, we will match you with a qualified applicant that is looking for a paid international internship opportunity. Through our offices around the world, we select, screen, and match applicants based on criteria of rural and agricultural companies. Based on your needs and the skills that you can offer EVs, an effective training plan will be specifically created, ensuring that mutual expectations are met from both parties.
Watch the video below to hear Bartlett's Farm talk about their experience hosting with CAEP.
Being a CAEP host is more than hosting an international intern. It is a true cultural exchange. As a host, you will have the opportunity to share your knowledge, skills, culture, and industry with an educated young adult. In turn, you will have the opportunity to learn about their culture, skills, and techniques back home.
Other host benefits include:
- EVs come with relevant prior work experience
- EVs are motivated and enthusiastic to learn
- Hosts make valuable international connections
- Hosts share ideas and also learn from EVs
- An affordable way to diversify a workforce
- CAEP takes care of all the logistics
