NCBA CLUSA is currently recruiting for nine Farmer-to-Farmer volunteer positions for its “Coffee Systems” program in El Salvador, Honduras and Peru.

Working with local host organizations, we have developed targeted scopes of work in partnership with local communities to support three sub-sectors: co-op development, sustainable coffee production and horticulture enterprise.

Current opportunities range from pest management and web design to anti-child labor. Well-qualified volunteers, including NCBA CLUSA members, are encouraged to apply. Membership with NCBA CLUSA connects you to our global cooperative network and comes with opportunities like Farmer-to-Farmer to make a lasting impact on communities around the world.

Sponsored by the U.S. Agency for International Development (USAID), the Farmer-to-Farmer program sends American farmers, agribusiness professionals and other specialists on 2-4 week volunteer assignments that promote sustainable economic growth and agricultural development worldwide. NCBA CLUSA pays all assignment-related expenses.

Volunteer technical assistance from U.S. farmers, practitioners, agribusinesses, cooperatives and universities helps smallholder farmers in developing countries improve their productivity, access new markets, and conserve environmental and natural resources.
