I grew with Ag Leadership

Launched in February 2023, I grew with Ag Leadership is an engaging outreach campaign that connects with CALF’s mission of “Growing leaders who make a difference.” The campaign features alumni and positive testimonials highlighting how they grew with Ag Leadership; how Ag Leadership enabled them to make a greater impact in agriculture, businesses, communities and families; and why they would recommend the Ag Leadership Program to others in agriculture.

The campaign appears predominantly on CALF’s social media platforms and our website (Q&As on this page). One alum is featured each month. In addition, alumni spotlights in Horizons will include the I grew with Ag Leadership theme/mark. Print ads will appear in select California agricultural industry publications.
