We have proudly launched our new Young Agri-preneur Program that was made possible through a $100,000 grant
from RBC’s Future Launch initiative.
Future Launch seeks to catalyze solutions that prepare young people better for the future of work through skills-building, relevant work experience, mentorship and network building.
Over a five-year potential relationship with ClearWater, our apprentices will move from working for us, to alongside us, as their demonstrated skills and capacity earn them access to land that they can farm for their own account. We provide instruction, oversight evolving into mentorship, paired with access to a stipend, land, equipment, marketing support, affordable living arrangements, and transitional guidance and support as they negotiate their future. Next year and each year thereafter, we hope to have two more ambitious young people join the program.
