Young aggie Aussies wanted overseas

Did you see our recent post on Skye Gabb? Inspired? Well, if you're a young Aussie with skills in agriculture, then you could be next!

The Australian Youth Ambassadors for Development (AYAD) Program is calling for applicants for 12 agriculture assignments. It's a fantastic opportunity for young people (18-30 years) from the agriculture sector to share their skills and experience with communities in developing countries.

AYAD John Paul Collins worked on an ACIAR-project on the south central coast of Vietnam

The ag and vet-related assignments are based in Africa, Asia and the South Pacific region and cover a range of topics from organic farming to plant pathology. Some of these assignments are with ACIAR projects. The successful applicants will spend 6 to 12 months working abroad, having the chance to make a real contribution to the improvement of people's lives.

Applications close Friday 24th February.

Good luck with your applications!
