Step-Up Mentorship Program

Title: Step-Up Mentorship Program
Description: STEP UP is an on-farm learning placement. We match those planning or considering a farming career with an experienced farm manager so that new farmers can learn critical aspects of farm business management in a hands-on setting. Under supervision, Mentees will engage in the day-to-day management of a farm operation to see how goals are set, decisions are made, expand their professional network and get their hands dirty in the process.

Details:
– Mentorships are a minimum of 8 weeks long (do not have to be consecutive weeks) and can begin as early as April 1, 2013
– Mentors receive a $2000 honorarium for participating
– Mentees must be interested in agriculture and at least 18 years old
– This is a national program and you can choose a placement close to home or in another province.
