Train the Trainer


The American Farm Bureau Foundation for Agriculture is hosting an energy “Train-the-Trainer” May 7th-8th, 2015 in Lincoln, NE. We are looking for leaders in agricultural literacy to attend! This application cycle is now closed.


The purpose of this event is to equip leaders in agricultural literacy with resources to train science teachers and/or volunteers to integrate agriculture into middle and high school science courses. In this training event, participants will receive the new middle and high school science units of curriculum (10 total lessons) scheduled to launch this February. Participants will receive a take-home kit of supplies as well!   We’ll dive into strategic planning for engaging science teachers in your community and state. You’ll also have an opportunity to tour a local energy facility.  


Important note: This training is new! If you attended last year’s train the trainer event in Denver, you are welcome to apply for this separate event!


Participants will receive a $750 stipend in addition to hotel and meal accommodations.
