Together with DairyNZ, B+LNZ is working to support NZ Young Farmers’ members to grow as leaders while promoting the food and fibre sector within high schools across New Zealand.
By connecting young farmer clubs to local schools we aim to:
- To give students a better understanding of the food and fibre sector, the job opportunities and skills required.
- To increase student and teacher confidence of the food and fibre sector and in the learning/training/transition pathways from school to workforce or tertiary training.
- Connect young people with NZ Young Farmers clubs where they are supported within their local communities when working in the food and fibre sector anywhere in the country.
