Select USDA Resources for Students


AgDiscovery is a two- to four-week summer outreach program to help middle and high school students explore careers in plant and animal science, wildlife management, and agribusiness. Students stay on a college campus and learn about agriculture from university professors, scientists, and administrative professionals in a variety of fields. Students gain experience through hands-on labs, workshops, field trips, and team-building activities.

Volunteer to Career

Amanda Carrell’s two passions in life are volunteering and agriculture. While an agronomy student at Arkansas State University, she began volunteering in the Earth Team Volunteer program at the Jonesboro, Ark., Field and Area Service Centers. Among her projects, she assisted civil engineers with the survey and design of a 300-acre irrigation reservoir. “It was worth it,” said Carrell about volunteering despite her busy schedule. “One of the greatest experiences I got out of it was how to transition from a student to a professional."
