Following up on its pilot program this year in Alberta, the Cattlemen’s Young Leaders program will now accept applications for mentorship spots available nationwide in 2011.
Beef enthusiasts between ages 18 and 35 may apply online to seek one of 16 eight-month CYL mentorships available beginning in April 2011. Applications close Jan. 25, 2011.
The CYL program provides industry-specific training and mentorship opportunities to young producers, who gain the opportunity to explore a potential career choice or involvement with a provincial or national producer organization.”
Participants could mentor with a veterinarian, work in beef science with Cargill, or shadow a board member from the CCA or an affiliate organization.
