Industry Professionals Needed for Pathways to Careers Conference

Posted by Sarah Mullen on 10/13/2021

Nebraska FFA is excited to host the annual Pathways to Careers Conference (P2C) on Saturday, November 13, 2021. The event will be in-person at the Younes Conference Center in Kearney.

P2C is designed for FFA members to explore career opportunities in agriculture. One of the most impactful ways for members to learn about and understand potential careers is from business and industry professionals! We know there is a continued need for qualified and skilled young people in Nebraska agriculture, and we invite you to join us at P2C to encourage young people to pursue an agricultural career.

During the conference, students will work with our Nebraska FFA State Officer team to understand the importance of career readiness and build their breakout session schedule. They will also hear from a keynote speaker about the importance of responsibility and resilience within their chosen career path.

Students will experience four, 45-minute sessions that are facilitated by industry partners, representing the Agricultural Food and Natural Resources career fields. We expect approximately 400 students to attend, and we need approximately 40 presenters. We hope you will volunteer to be one of them!

Here are a few points that may be helpful as you plan for this opportunity:

The goal for students who attend P2C is that they leave each session of the conference with a tangible skill – specific to your profession or industry – that they can demonstrate to others. We want students to leave the conference with excitement to be employed within the agriculture industry.

Please complete the form located here by Monday, October 18th to indicate your availability to present at P2C Conference. Nebraska FFA Association staff will provide additional details and information once presenters are confirmed.
