At the Ag Ed listening session I went to this summer there was a discussion about pairing students up with community leaders as a mentor/job shadowing component of the students coursework. The principal from Martin County West spoke highly of the success in their school.
Do other schools use this form of partnering? Not just for on the job class, but for all agriculture students?
What has worked well? Tips, advice for others?
Ideas on how this could benefit the ag program?
