Ag Careers Video on YouTube - An added resource

Friday, January 17, 2014

-Sent to all contacts.

To: Illinois High School FFA Teachers & Associates
          As members of the Illinois Agricultural Leadership Program, class of 2014, we were charged with creating an agricultural literacy project to educate the public about positive aspects of agriculture as well as inform them where their food, fiber and fuel come from. Our group chose to put together a video to educate our youth on the variety of careers in the agriculture industry as well as inspire them to potentially pursue a career in the industry.
The following clip provides thoughts and opportunities around the variety of career possibilities within the agriculture industry. Our focus was to encourage students who are undecided in their career plans to look into the field of agriculture. There are many jobs in this workforce, which students may be unaware of the direct relation to agriculture, but the video shares many of the “up and coming” opportunities.  We hope this video will educate and inspire the students in your class to pursue something new and different, produce a new innovation or strategically think of new concepts for future agriculture production.
