Ag Career Explorers
In collaboration with El Centro FFA, "Exploring Careers in Agriculture" is specifically designed for middle-high school students interested in exploring careers in agriculture, including agri-business, ornamental horticulture, plant science, and animal science. These sessions will include a live Q&A with Imperial Valley agriculture employers.
Whether students are learning about agriculture careers for the first time or are diving into specific details; the AG Careers Explorers is designed to educate about the multitude of opportunities that exist in the industry of agriculture.
