Description

The Youth Pathways Grant for Careers in Agriculture is a grant program from the Ohio Farm Bureau Foundation and is designed to help young people discover their purpose and passion in agricultural careers through programming that introduces them to the educational and employment possibilities related to farming and other agricultural related careers.
