Literacy Project

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.

Ambassador Program

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.

Suggested Lessons for Classroom Volunteers

Are you looking for a variety of lessons to bring to classrooms? AITC has over 80 Lesson Plans! Below are some of our favorites, and check out more of them here.
