- About Us
FFAC has the privilege of connecting with many passionate young people, and after seeing our presentations, many students are motivated to take the next step and become activists themselves.
Our Advocacy Institute, founded in 2018, offers an opportunity for passionate high school and college students to gain the knowledge, skills, connections, and confidence to become effective advocates within their own communities and future leaders of the movement. Even more than a conduit through which FFAC can connect with passionate young activists, our program serves to connect them to each other. We’re especially focused on areas where they might have trouble finding like-hearted peers.
The FFAC National College Internship program engages college students around the US and Canada that are passionate about educating the public about the impacts of our food choices and creating change around food systems. Through remote mentorship, analytical discussion, and project work, interns gain valuable tools to become compassionate leaders.
Motivated high school students around the US and Canada are invited to participate in the FFAC National High School Mentorship program. This is a competitive program, comparable to an internship, but specifically designed around creating community at the high school level. High school mentees pair with college-level mentors to work through trainings. Mentees will learn through FFAC’s customized curriculum through our online platform, and discussion in our high school program tends to be incredibly rich.
