On a mission to support young people to have an abundance mindset

Its that time of year when we begin the onboarding process for our Cultivate Growing Young Leaders program and our school programs Kreative Koalas and The Archibull Prize

When our school programs in 2020 were officially identified as “Student Leadership” programs helping build natural disaster resilience I realised we had come full circle and there will be significant cross over in the introduction to all our programs of “Who We are and What we Do”

What do we do?

Picture You in Agriculture supports young people in the agriculture sector and young people in primary and secondary schools to solve tomorrow’s problems, today.

We offer a leadership growth journey in the agriculture sector for young people that is quite unique.

Agriculture has a wealth of excellent leadership programs that teach people how to be the best version of themselves and succeed in their careers.

We are giving it a red hot shot to teach young people to lead others and multiply their impact.

In schools we support teachers to show young people what they teach is real and show students how they can apply what they learn in the real world.

Quoting our leadership development stream coach Josh Farr

“In the modern world, in 1990, in 2000, in 2010, in 2021 its really difficult to know if the technical skills we are being taught are going to be relevant. We don’t know if we are going to need to know how to code or to analyse data. We do not know what the robots are going to be able to do. This is why in the workplace there is a move back to the fundamental human skills. “

The top 3 skills 21st century employers want are

  • Communication
  • Interpersonal skills
  • Teamwork

How you communicate, empathise, the way you make people feel is fundamental.

There are so many ways of getting your ideas out to the world.

  • Verbally
  • Written
  • Artistically

The key is to find the medium that suits you and you enjoy producing and creating. Watch Josh talk about this here 

We provide opportunities for young people to find the medium that suits them, find their tribe and take action.

In essence we are agriculture’s equivalent of Oaktree and UNYouth

In life, our mindset determines which road we travel on. It gives me great joy to be part of a tribe supporting young people to have an abundance mindset.

The world needs creative, innovative and courageous young people who can connect, collaborate and act. We know that youth may only be 20% of the population but they are 100% of the future. The time is now to let them share their dreams and design the future they want to see.
