Program Mission

The NC Tobacco Trust Fund Commission Agricultural Leadership Development Program mission is to empower the next generation of agriculturalists with the knowledge, experience, and skills to become successful leaders in their businesses, communities, industries, state, and nation. We provide our participants with immersive exposure to ideas, perspectives, people, trends, and issues that will shape their lives, agriculture, and the world in the 21st century, experiences that are not possible in the normal course of farm life and business. We challenge our participants to expand their comfort zones, develop critical thinking skills, appreciate diversity in all its forms, gain the ability to communicate with a wide variety of audiences, and understand the impact that effective leadership can have to strengthen families, farms, businesses, communities, and the world.


Our vision is an expanding and influential network of mature, confident, and creative North Carolina leaders in farming, business, government, and community organizations that are rooted in a common understanding of the importance of agriculture. This network provides program graduates with a firm footing in starting their leadership journeys, and peers with whom they can connect throughout their careers, both in their work inside the agriculture industry and in the larger world.
