Mexican Adventures

Working closely with two universities in Mexico (UPAEP and Chapingo Univeristy) gives MIAP students an opportunity to explore our southern neighbor and the agricultural industry within. Possibilities are endless as you can explore education, agricultural practices, or management internships across the country.

AgriCorps and Ghana

Agricorps connects American agriculture professionals to the demand for experiential, school-based, agricultural education in developing countries.

AgriCorps partners with existing Non-Governmental Organizations (NGOs) in developing countries that focus on youth development through agriculture. Through cooperating with the National 4-H Council, AgriCorps has been linked to dozens of 4-H programs around the world. Although AgriCorps provides capacity building opportunities for partnering organizations, we believe that a strong in-country partner is essential to furthering our mission, objectives, and outcomes. After two successful pilot projects in Liberia, our first corps was deployed to Ghana, West Africa, in partnership with 4-H Ghana. In 2016 we sent our first full group of Fellows back to Liberia, in partnership with 4-H Liberia.
