Future Leaders Program

Cultivating Future Agriculture Leaders

As you may be aware 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 entitled AdvancingAg Future Leaders Program.

Our application period is now open until March 31, 2017 and we would welcome you to share this information with anyone you think may be interested in participating in this program.

The goal is to pair young agri-professionals – whether that is young farmers or those interested in a specific career in the agriculture industry – with leaders who can share their knowledge and experience and facilitate key professional development opportunities.”

AdvancingAg is a 10 to 12 month program that will pair selected mentees, aged 18-35 with a carefully selected mentor that 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 menthe. The program will be flexible and tailored to the goals and aspirations of the mentee.”

How to Apply

Young agri-professionals interested in applying to become a mentee in the AdvancingAg Future Leaders Program can visit www.advancingag.ca to complete an application. In the first year of launching the program we will be selecting eight mentees to participate, with the goal of increasing to 15 mentees in the following years. Each mentee will be paired with a mentor, as well as provided a budget for professional development opportunities, and AdvancingAg will host a workshop-style leadership forum for the successful applicants.
