Did you know by being a member of Georgia Farm Bureau you help support youth programs like Young Farmers and Ranchers and Ag in the Classroom? We’d like to share a little about these two programs, which you help make possible.
Young Farmers and Ranchers provide an outlet for 18-35-year olds to gain leadership, educational, and social opportunities preparing them to take on roles in leadership and responsibility within county, state or national Farm Bureau organizations. The program also brings together young people that are involved or interested in the agriculture industry while promoting growth in leadership, educational outreach, diversity, and industry advocacy in our communities around the state.
Each year Georgia Farm Bureau leads a group of Young Farmer members on a trip to Washington D.C. It’s a great opportunity that allows the young people to meet with lawmakers and share concerns and ideas about agriculture. For more information about the Young Farmers & Ranchers program click here.
Also, by being a member of Georgia Farm Bureau you help support the Ag in the Classroom program. The purpose of this program is to increase agricultural literacy among children and the general public. It also provides tools to assist teachers in Georgia in implementing the instruction of agriculture-related concepts in the classroom. Farm Bureau volunteers work hard toward this mission in their communities by hosting training courses for teachers throughout the state.
