The beef community needs your help to tell the positive beef story! The Pennsylvania Beef Council and Beef Checkoff Program are seeking a dedicated group of young adults with a passion to advocate on behalf of the beef community, as part of the ‘Millennial to Millennial’ (M2M) Program. This team of Millennial advocates will receive training to help educate consumers about beef at large consumer expos and events throughout the year.
The M2M Program will serve as a unique learning opportunity for students to enhance their advocacy skills and build a voice for the agriculture industry. Students will also be tasked with additional assignments such as social media engagements, media interviews, written press releases, beef advocacy efforts and others to connect consumers with America’s beef producers. These assignments can be tailored to an individual’s interests and talents to promote personal growth while in the program.
Participant Requirements Once Selected:
Those interested in advocating for the beef industry must submit an application and resume by Monday, October 10, 2016. Checkoff staff will conduct interviews at both Penn State University and Delaware Valley University the following week; October 20-26, 2016. Those members selected for the M2M team will need to attend an in-person spokesperson and advocacy training in mid-November.
Overall Program Goal: The ‘Millennial to Millennial’ (M2M) Program will create beef community advocates for use at large consumer events and speaking engagements, educating the public about beef and beef production. Program recruits must conduct themselves in a professional and mature manner when representing the beef checkoff. Advocates will receive a variety of leadership, communication and professional development skills through hands-on, real-world experiences.
