We are excited to offer Classes 41 and 42 a variety of program options during this ‘fallow’ year!  Participants have the chance to sign up for as many or as few of these programs as they choose.  While participation is not a requirement for their graduation, we have asked that they commit to participating fully in any programs they sign up for.  Like the traditional program, their growth through these programs will be dependent on their investment into the experience.

Calling all AgForestry Alumni!

We’ve heard from a number of program participants that having an alumni mentor would create tremendous value for them as they pursue their leadership development goals.  We need you to share your leadership expertise and experience!

These relationships are intended to offer participants the opportunity to focus on their leadership development with the coaching and guidance of seasoned leaders.

  • Varies by group

As part of the traditional program, class participants establish personal leadership development goals.  For Class 42 participants who are interested, they will be assigned to a ‘Goal Getters Group’ where they will be matched with 2-3 of their peers with similar development goals.  These groups will provide accountability, support, and encouragement for each other as they practice and pursue their goals.
