KLN Family Brands, in partnership with an educational program, will bring more than 60 international interns to the company, according to the Perham Focus.

Communicating for Agriculture Education Programs has arranged for 20,000 interns to travel to the United States since 1985. This will be the first time KLN will partner with the group.

The interns, some of whom will arrive in the next few weeks, will have 10-month work visas. They have a variety of work experiences and have gone through a strenuous approval process.

The majority of the interns have worked in the country through other internships and are in their mid-20s with strong English speaking skills.
