Edgar County Farm Bureau’s Young Leader program tackles the unique needs of men and women 18-35 years old, who have passion for all aspects of agriculture. Whether you are a farmer, work in agribusiness or desire to support the food and fiber industry, you will discover new friends, business opportunities, and ways to make a difference in your own backyard… and around the world.
Young Leaders build community and promote agriculture both in Edgar County and on the state level. Through activities such as donating Thanksgiving meals, Farm Safety Day, and Agriculture in the Classroom activities, Young Leaders build relationships with youth and encourage leadership development after high school FFA and 4-H activities. Young Leaders also learn how to affect change and build on a foundation for leadership at the state level with programs such as Agriculture Leaders of Tomorrow and the annual Young Leaders Conference.
