LEADAg stands for Leading, Educating and Developing the next generation of the agricultural workforce
The program addresses the lack of opportunity for young people to gain practical, hands-on training and skills to make them employable. Participation in the program provides young people with work ready skills and support from industry mentors. Not only do they benefit from the skills development but also build the confidence and capacity to choose a career in the agricultural industry.
