Trainee Program

Trainee Program

In 2007, LEI started a training and internship program to allow exchange visitors to have a structured and work-based training environment to enhance their existing skills and knowledge. Our exchange visitors obtain J-1 Visas, which allows them to train with our team for 1 year. They are here not only to learn about our farm practices, but to also experience American culture. This allows us to learn more about other cultures while we work alongside each other as a team! We have had trainees from over 30 countries including Brazil, Ghana, Guatemala, Philippines, Korea and Jamaica!

We have two buildings that offer living quarters for our trainees, Visa program attendees and other LEI team members. One location is at our previous LEI Headquarters location at 500 4th Street in downtown Fairbury and at our current headquarters at 1501 K Street.

Our Trainee Program Administrator helps each trainee from the start of their training program until the end. The program administrator has the opportunity to help individuals adapt to our culture, experience different cultures and make lifelong connections along the way!

Trainee Testimonial

“For the time that I’ve been here, LEI has been giving me a lot of wonderful experiences. Such as the knowledge in swine production that I’ve acquired and getting to know people from around the world and their cultures. But the most important thing I can get out of this opportunity is that in order to achieve a goal you have to work really hard and give your best at it!”
