Empowering Students to GROW

Supporting healthy, safe and confident lifestyles among rural youth and their communities. ​

Ag for Life's mission is to provide youth with real life wisdom and resources from many of today's top personal development and safety experts, schools, business professionals, and other organizations around the globe. 

Our programs offer today's youth a medium to nourish, connect and grow. From personal wellness to networking, to goal setting and community building, our Wellness and Safety pillar is built around 8 Dimensions of Wellness.

We like to think of the dimensions of health and wellness as a tractor wheel -- if one part of the wheel is deflated, the whole wheel is affected and will not roll as smoothly. You may not notice small changes in the wheel, but over time, if parts of the wheel are neglected for too long, it will deflate completely, and you'll have a much bigger problem to tackle. 

Health and wellness is more than being free from illness and injury, it's the spirited process of change and growth that lasts a lifetime. It addresses the broader spectrum of your body, encompassing the overall balance of your physical, mental and spiritual well-being. It speaks to the way you live your everyday life. 

Ag for Life’s Rural Safety Unit is on-the-road and ready to travel to schools, communities, fairs, festivals and other events to educate, encourage and promote rural and farm safety. Programming is aimed at youth and their families, who live on, work, play, or visit farms and ranches.
