The American Farm Bureau Foundation for Agriculture is building an Outreach Team to get the word out about the Foundation’s educational resources. As members of the team, farmers, ranchers, teachers, volunteers, Farm Bureau committee members, ag leaders and industry reps can help others learn what the Foundation has to offer by presenting at regional and state events.

Foundation Outreach Team members will receive advance notice on grants and new materials, be featured in new resources, have opportunities to pilot new programs and influence the development of new resources.

Becoming part of the team is a three-step process:

  • Complete “Planning with the Pillars: Part 1” and “Planning with the Pillars: Part 2” eLearning courses on Farm Bureau University.
  • Conduct one classroom visit, fair or other event presentation using AFBFA materials and complete a reflection survey.
  • Attend one Outreach Team Culminating Workshop at Annual Convention, at FUSION, or via a virtual webinar.
