In a highly interactive environment, students will learn about career opportunities in a broad range of fields: animal and veterinary services, plant health and production, food safety and processing, and the overarching business skills needed to move agriculture from farm to fork. Students will be introduced to the university’s 1,000-acre diversified farm and food processing facilities before being immersed in real-world experiences. Offered through the Jordan College of Agricultural Sciences and Technology, this program works to inform, prepare, and motivate young people to make positive contributions to the future successes of agriculture. This program is open to rising high school sophomores through rising seniors.
