Internships – Etienne collaborates with American University in Les Cayes, developing and teaching agronomy and veterinary courses. Each year he trains a group of interns, including taking them into the field to work on a variety of projects. Compassion for Haiti contributes funds for transporting, feeding, and housing these unpaid interns while they are deployed. In 2017, Etienne kept his 34 interns busy working the fields for crop programs, distributing donated livestock, and assisting with community projects such as rebuilding the church/school in Bwa Pikon.
