Secondary Student Outreach

The OAC Outreach Program supports secondary students and educators through in-class workshops, on-campus experiences, online teaching resources, and participation in professional development days and conferences for educators.

We showcase the educational and professional opportunities that exist within the areas of agriculture, and food and environmental sciences, community development through unique experiential learning opportunities. Explore the countless opportunities for students in these areas both locally and globally, through one of our tailored offerings.
