LEXINGTON, Ky. — With NYBLS being canceled this year, University of Nebraska-Lincoln wanted to provide youth in Kentucky with another beef leadership opportunity.
Youth who join this statewide learning cohort will gain tools and resources for being a beef advocate, work as a group to become a strong ambassador for the beef community and be able to answer tough questions about beef and raising cattle. The group will meet initially on December 16th (on Zoom) to introduce the program, get to know their cohort and learn more about the beef industry as a whole. During the cohort timeframe, youth will complete the Masters of Beef Advocacy program online through National Cattlemen’s Beef Association. In addition to completing the online program, youth will have the opportunity to continue discussion with their cohort through a series of discussion boards, additional learning resources and activities to help put what they learn into action. Youth will then log-in on January 6th for a celebration webinar to mark their completion of the program, learn more about beef in Nebraska and discuss careers in the beef industry.
Kentucky youth who participate in this program will receive a MBA Tool Box upon completion.
Applications due December 14th by 5:00pm CST.
