What is Teach Ag California?
To raise awareness of the need to recruit and retain high quality and diverse agriculture teachers, encourage others to consider a career teaching agriculture and celebrate the positive contributions that agriculture teachers make in our schools and communities.
To ensure an abundant supply of high quality and diverse agriculture teachers who will cultivate the next generation of problem solvers, leaders, entrepreneurs and agriculturalists.
The National Teach Ag Campaign began in 2009 as an initiative led by the National Association of Agriculture Educators. The California Teach Ag Campaign was officially launched in 2014 with the implementation of a campaign coordinator position; specifically designed to address the recruitment, retention and recognition of agriculture teachers in California. Teach Ag California is funded by the California Department of Education, with additional project funding from the State Teach Ag Results (STAR) program.
