INTERTRIBAL AGRICULTURE COUNCIL
YOUTH PROGRAMS

The Intertribal Agriculture Council created the youth programs as a response to the growing concern of the age gap in the agriculture industry. It is of importance that youth be placed as a priority as they will be the next generation to uphold Indian Country. The goal and mission is to educate and empower Native American youth through the many services that we provide. We wholeheartedly believe that youth are the future and deserve a running start. Therefore, IAC provides internships, funding assistance with scholarships, and technical assistance with many programs to assist in their agricultural endeavors.
