Teens Have Outstanding Opportunity Through VCFC

Teens ages 16-19 have an awesome opportunity to learn about business cooperatives, meet teens from across the state, and stay at Graves Mountain Lodge for a FREE weekend, all through the VCFC Youth Leadership Conference! The Virginia Council on Farmer Cooperatives hosts this annual event to help youth learn about the cooperative way of business in Virginia and across the country. Local co-ops sponsor participants, and all of the teens we have sent in the past have reported the conference to be a very worthwhile endeavor. The event dates are April 9-11. Contact the Extension Office by early February if you desire to attend.
