The Institute for Future Agricultural Leaders (IFAL) is a week-long program for rising high school seniors interested in the industry of agriculture. Emphasis is placed on: career opportunities, emerging technology, citizenship and leadership development. Students will visit the schools of agriculture, tour research farms and explore university laboratories. They will visit agribusinesses, participate in leadership development classes, tour the General Assembly, and see the offices of North Carolina Farm Bureau.
