The goal of AITC’s Literacy Project is to improve both the reading and agricultural literacy of Oregon students in grades K-5. Each year a new agriculturally-themed book is chosen and a lesson is developed that reinforces the message of the book. Then hundreds of enthusiastic, trained volunteers bring in-class field trips to classrooms throughout Oregon.
Are you a passionate individual who are interested in carrying out the Oregon AITC goals and mission? Oregon AITC will provide those accepted into the Ambassador Program professional training in working with students, agricultural literacy, and public outreach/communication. Ambassadors will work on their project for a minimum of one term (Fall, Winter, or Spring) with the option to continue for additional terms.
