Purdue Extension: Expert Resources for COVID-19

Indiana AgVets

January 9, 2020

The Indiana AgVets Certification and Internship is an agricultural career training opportunity specifically for U.S. military veterans in Indiana or surrounding states. The program prepares participants for rewarding careers in production agriculture or agribusiness by providing specialized training (free of charge) tailored to the veteran's personal interests and career aspirations, and paid internships in a farm or agricultural service business.

Indiana AgVets is a project of the Hoosier Uplands Economic Development Corporation, in cooperation with the AgrAbility Project at Purdue University. The program is supported by the USDA's NIFA Grant Number 2019-77028-29971.

The Primary goal of this project is to equip veterans with the skills and knowledge necessary to be successful in agriculture-related careers.
