The YFC partner with PYiA to deliver our primary and secondary school programs that empower young people to design and implement sustainability action projects through the lens of agriculture.

“Picture You in Agriculture believes in attracting the best and brightest young people to agriculture. We equip them with the skills needed to navigate the world, give them confidence to share their stories and support them to take on leadership positions, all while contending with the many changes life will throw at them.”
Our mission is to put young people at the centre of the learning and doing experience.
We are taking the next step to ensure young people are getting a seat at the decision making table, feel informed and are actively engaged in the conversation and have the skills and knowledge to put their ideas into action.
Working closely with experienced leaders, Picture You In Agriculture uses cross-generational mentoring to foster the knowledge, skills and teamwork mentality necessary to lead and support.
