2024 Youth Agriculture Leadership Conference

Governor Kathy Hochul announced today that applications are now open for New York’s first-ever collaborative youth agriculture leadership conference.

The 2024 Youth Agriculture Leadership Conference is an opportunity for youth from 4-H, MANRRS, and FFA to connect and learn together. It will be this fall, November 13-14, 2024 in Albany. Youth in grades 11 and 12 will gather to envision a future for NY’s agriculture and food system that is sustainable, innovative and equitable. The conference will provide young leaders the opportunity to connect with state leaders to better understand how policy shapes interconnected food, agriculture and natural resource systems.

Who are the young ag leaders you know? I hope you consider inviting them to apply for this opportunity!

Learn more on the conference website and the FAQs page. Youth are encouraged to apply by July 15.

There will also be an information session on June 20 at 3 PM that will include an overview of the conference along with time for you to ask questions. Please register here for connection information.
