Our customers have asked for two things;
- Students want additional programming to help them become great, young leaders. They have the opportunity to do this across myriad AFA programs. The AFA Leader Fellowship experience provides a young person partnership with a trained coach to become the sought after leader and employee in their post-collegiate choices.
- Partners want high-performing, highly- competent young people to work on behalf of agriculture & food. They want young people who have experience in innovation, critical-thinking and reflection. The Fellowship tackles twenty-one leader competencies to accelerate and provide evidence of mastery.

The Leader Fellowship matches driven, dedicated coaches with driven, dedicated students. Life-long learning is getting a lot of buzz lately but the truth of life-long learning is that it requires study and reflection. College students have plenty of opportunity for theory, it is the work with a coach that builds in “lab” time for a student. Conversely, time with a student builds the coaching and mentoring skills of the professional. Consider joining us on this journey, you have everything to gain!
