Native Youth in Food and Agriculture Leadership Summit

The Next Generation of Food and Agriculture Leaders

The 2021 Native Youth in Food and Agriculture Leadership Summit is open to American Indian, Alaska Native, and Native Hawaiian youth, ages 18-23 (including recently graduated high school seniors).

The 2021 Summit will be a skills-development focused event that will give attendees an opportunity to do a deep dive in a particular area of food and agricultural production or policy.

Agricultural Business and Finance

Land Stewardship and Conservation 

Agricultural Law and Policy

Nutrition and Health

While at the Summit, participants will be led by experts in these areas and spent their time at the event learning and working on these topics with a small group of their peers. In addition to learning the critical skills they need to be the next generation of Indian Country food and agriculture leaders in each of these topic areas, all students who attended also received a full Food Safety Modernization Act training on the Produce Safety Rule during their time at the Summit.
