Frontier Welcomes 2023 Summer Interns

Jun 01, 2023


Frontier Cooperative is excited to welcome 14 college student interns this summer. They will be stationed at various Frontier locations, taking on roles in each of our different business units. To ensure their success, each of our interns will be paired with a mentor who will guide them throughout their internship journey.
 
Our interns come from different colleges in Nebraska, including Chadron State College, Northeast Community College, Southeast Community College, Midland University, University of Nebraska – Lincoln, and Doane University. They bring diverse perspectives and knowledge to the cooperative.
 
Throughout the summer, our interns will participate in a wide range of professional development events. These events include trainings, career seminars and classes, location and vendor tours, community events, regular check-ins with leadership, and many other enriching experiences.
 
As part of their internship, each student will create and focus on a project that aligns with their interests and goals at Frontier. Towards the end of the summer, they will have the opportunity to present their projects to the Senior Leadership Team, showcasing their achievements and the knowledge they have gained.
 
Our internship program not only provides valuable real-world experience, but also offers insights into potential future careers.
 
"Our internship program at Frontier offers a unique opportunity for students to immerse themselves in every facet of agriculture within our cooperative. Providing a meaningful experience for these students is very important, as they will be the men and women serving our farmers and communities for years to come,” said Jon Brabec, Chief Marketing Officer of Frontier Cooperative.  
 
With this comprehensive internship program, Frontier Cooperative aims to foster the growth and development of young talent while simultaneously benefiting from their fresh perspectives and enthusiasm.
