Sign-up for WPA's Youth Pork Mentorship Program is December 7
Wisconsin Ag Connection - 12/04/2018

The Wisconsin Pork Association is still accepting applications for its Pork Mentorship Program through the end of the week. College students with a passion for agriculture and an interest in the swine industry are encouraged to apply. Prior experience in the pork industry is not required.

The program is designed as a year-long program beginning in late January. During the course of the year, selected participants will expand their knowledge of the swine industry through hands-on experiences and job shadows, involvement in pork industry programs, and partaking in Wisconsin Pork Association activities.

Participants will have the opportunity to network with pork industry leaders, identify future career goals, and create valuable connections with potential employers. Upon successful completion of the program, students will receive a $500 scholarship to apply towards their education expenses.

To be considered for the program, applicants must submit a completed application form, personal resume, and current college transcript. The program is open to Wisconsin residents enrolled full-time at any post-secondary school.

For more information, call the WPA office at 608-723-7551. Applications are due by December 7.
