REGINA – The Agricultural Producers Association of Saskatchewan (APAS) is now accepting new applicants for the Youth Leadership and Mentorship Program (YLMP) presented by Farm Credit Canada (FCC).
“Having been a mentee in this program, I can say with confidence this program is a great benefit to young producers in Saskatchewan,” APAS president Ian Boxall said. “The experience these young producers will be able to take part in will stay with them for the rest of their lives.”
FCC is a sponsor for YLMP for another year.
“We share APAS's passion for making Canadian agriculture better and recognize the importance of mentoring young producers,” Senior Vice-President of Prairie Operations for FCC Shannon Weatherall said. “Helping each other succeed through networking and mentoring is an integral part of our corporate culture and the way we do business, which makes supporting this program a natural fit.”
YLMP is open to young producers between the ages of 18 and 40. Events the mentees will get to experience include a day at the Saskatchewan Legislature, the APAS General Meeting in the fall, and the Canadian Federation of Agriculture’s Annual General Meeting in Ottawa in February 2023.
The deadline to apply for YLMP is July 31.
