Young Ag Professionals
Our young farmer programming provides community, leadership development, and professional growth opportunities for Farm Bureau members who are 18-35. Find out if there’s a Young Ag Professionals group near you.
Young Agricultural Professionals (YAP) are Farm Bureau members ages 18 to 35 who work either part or full time in Ohio’s largest industry. We’ve made it easy to meet others who share your passion for agriculture and stay connected all year long, with signature events like the Winter Leadership Experience and Washington, D.C. Leadership Experience, and programs like AgriPOWER and Collegiate Farm Bureaus. For students pursuing education in ag-related fields, there are a variety of scholarships available through our foundation and county Farm Bureaus. American Farm Bureau also offers an annual Leadership Conference.
