Webinar: Getting Youth Excited About Ag: Be An Informed Agvocate

Posted on

In our sixth webinar, “Getting youth excited about ag,” Portia MacDonald-Dewhirst, Executive Director of the Canadian Agricultural Human Resource Council, provides tips, tools and insights to help guide our conversations with young people and get them thinking about agriculture in a different way.

Portia provides ways to highlight all the opportunity and value that agriculture brings to Canada and the world – and make it relative to a younger audience. Using labour market information, she outlines the ag career opportunities available from primary production to science and technology to marketing and finance.

She also shows you how and where to start conversations in your community.
