High School Students
Looking for a well paying, interesting career that can help make the world a better place? The career you’re looking for is ready for you – in food and agriculture!
The UN estimates that by the year 2050, the population of the earth will reach at least 9.5 billion - that’s a lot of people! More people will need better and easier access to food, while climate change may actually take away some of the land we need to grow it. That’s a problem, but you can be a part of the solution.
To feed the future, we need people like you - people willing to stand up and change the world. Without more students and young professionals entering the food and agriculture workforce, millions could go undernourished, or worse, without food at all. We need you to do your part by entering one of many amazing careers.
