The American Soybean Association (ASA) and Valent USA have created the Soy Leaders of the Future program to provide an understanding of agriculture policy and tools to advocate effectivly. Classes begin this summer on July 10-13 in Washington D.C., in association with the ASA Board Meeting and Soy Issues Briefing.
The new Soy Leaders of the Future program, sponsored by Valent and ASA, is designed to expose young people with a connection to the farm to an education on major policy issues and advocacy. The program will also encourage these future young leaders to consider careers within agriculture associations and industry, as well as government regulatory and legislative positions.
Students 18 and older with an interest in policy and advocacy may apply online by Friday, June 9. All costs are covered for students selected to take part in the program.
