Nebraska LEAD Program


The Nebraska LEAD Program began 31 years ago to develop agricultural leaders from Nebraska's future generations.

The constant changes that occur in agricultural policy, marketing, economics and technology point to the need for strong leaders to advocate for the heart of Nebraska's economy--agriculture.

The program is recognized both statewide and nationally as an innovative organization that has improved Nebraska in many ways. Many members of commodity boards, extension boards, local school boards, or local church councils, count themselves among the program's 850+ alumni.
