Take advantage of mentorship and career building opportunities in the Canadian beef industry through the Canadian Cattlemen’s Association’s (CCA) Cattlemen’s Young Leaders (CYL) Mentorship Program! Applications for the CYL Program have officially launched and are open until March 31, 2022 at 11:59 pm MT.
The CYL Program is open to young people ages 18-35 across Canada involved in all areas of the beef supply chain, including producers, students, veterinarians, financial advisors and much more! Through the CYL Program, 16 participants are selected annually to be paired with a hand-picked industry leader for a nine-month mentorship to help advance their career in the beef industry and are awarded a $2,000 budget to put towards learning opportunities of their choice. In addition, participants are offered numerous skill-building training and networking opportunities catered uniquely to the beef industry. We strongly value diversity amongst applicants where all are welcome to apply, as it plays a key role in young leaders gaining exposure to new ideas and creating peer learning experiences.
If you’re interested in taking the next step to fast-track your career and involvement in the Canadian beef industry, please visit our website for more information.
The opportunities for these young leaders would not be possible without the tremendous support received from our generous program sponsors. Funding for the CYL Program is made available through Foundation Partners Cargill, MNP, McDonald’s Canada and New Holland. The program also receives support from Gold Sponsors Farm Credit Canada, Alltech, RBC Future Launch and Elanco, along with program sponsorship from the Alberta Cattle Feeders’ Association and Kim McConnell.
