What is the Mentorship Program?

The Wisconsin Pork Association Mentorship Program is a program for college students with a passion for agriculture and interest in the swine industry. Participants will expand their knowledge of the swine industry through hands-on experiences and job shadows, involvement in pork industry programs, and partaking in Wisconsin Pork Association activities. The program, which has a strong focus on career development, will provide opportunities to network with pork industry leaders, identify future career goals, and create valuable connections with potential employers. The program mentors will be announced January 2022. The program will begin in February 2022 and conclude in October 2022.
