OUR MISSION

EDUCATE AND EMPOWER NATIVE AMERICAN YOUTH

In response to the growing age gap in the agriculture industry, IAC prioritized creating youth programs. We wholeheartedly believe that youth are the future and deserve a running start.

The Youth Program provides internships, funding assistance with scholarships, and technical assistance to support youth agricultural endeavors.

2022 IAC Youth Essay Contest

Essay Contest Resources

With a lack of local access to healthy and affordable food staples, tribal agriculture producers are uniquely positioned to meet local demand. However, food processing infrastructure is limited or non-existent. Without adequate access to processing options, nutritional issues remain as direct-to-market channels are not realized in Indian Country.

Write a 3-5 page essay describing your community, any diet/nutritional issues you see, the makeup of Tribal agriculture and/or local food producers, local meat and/or food processing infrastructure available, and opportunities to leverage local food production to more adequately feed your community.

 

Develop a proposed plan to address local food insecurity issues by increasing opportunities for local producers to process their raw products to become marketable within your community.

Check back for an announcement on essay contest winners soon!
