Tuesday, March 28, 2017
The Alberta Wheat Commission and the Alberta Barley Commission have launched a mentorship initiative aimed at fostering a strong network of future agricultural leaders for a progressive and vibrant cropping industry in Alberta. The initiative is called AdvancingAg Future Leaders Program.
AdvancingAg is a 10 to 12 month program that will pair selected mentees, aged 18-35 with a carefully selected mentor who is passionate about the agriculture industry, eager to share their experience and help shape the professional growth of a young agri-professional. Mentors and mentees will be paired up based on the interests and career goals of the mentee. The program will be flexible and tailored to the goals and aspirations of the mentee.
Young agri-professionals interested in becoming a mentee can visit www.advancingag.ca for more information. The application period is open until March 31, 2017.
