Weekend Teen Event: Leadership and Career Choices, Nov. 1-2

PDPWThe Professional Dairy Producers of Wisconsin’s (PDPW) 2014 Youth Leadership Derby™ is being held Friday through Saturday in Thorp, Wis., November 1-2.

The twenty-two hour, overnight educational experience offers high school students, ages 15-18, the chance to experience the dairy industry through hands-on, science-based, communication-focused activities with many interactive networking opportunities that will develop student’s leadership skill-set.

Highlights of the Youth Leadership Derby include exceptional breakout sessions, hands-on activities, farm tours, and our mysterious key-note speaker. Our key-note speaker is a young dairy enthusiast sure to please students’ expectations.

Each of the program trainers and over a half-dozen college-aged mentors will share their personal, academic and career paths, which will depict the life-decisions that led them to their personal successes. Our mentors are a popular component of the Youth Leadership Derby program, and each of the participants will have the opportunity to interact and network with this intriguing group. The program is not only fun, but impactful and life changing for students as they consider their next step. Do not miss sharing this experience with students in your life.
