The ALP Impact
Developing Leadership and Communites.
ALP graduates are active in many ways throughout Indiana and beyond, serving the various interests related to agriculture and the communities where they live. Check back often for updates on ALP Network. Graduates of ALP and current ALP class members may request to be a member of the LinkedIn AgrIInstitute/Indiana Agricultural Leadership Program group. Updates and timely announcements are posted on this page as well as the AgrIInstitute page on Facebook. Keep informed of events and ALP Network announcements.

The ALP experience provided me the opportunity to identify and develop leadership skills, and a desire to continue honing those skills. There was an opportunity to establish deep friendships with people whose opinions I still value greatly. I learned that no matter if a person lives in northern Indiana, southern Indiana or a farm in Malaysia — despite the obvious differences we can easily identify, there exists a commonality. Is there a greater leadership skill to discover than helping people find commonality?read more

We firmly believe that the Indiana Agricultural Leadership Program is a valuable, life-changing experience for participants and a sound investment for those interested in promoting ag and rural leadership in the Hoosier state and beyond, but don’t take our word for it. Please read what our ALP class graduates and supporters say about the program.

As I reflect on the effect ALP had on my career and life, the list is enormous. The network, the contacts, and the leadership skills you receive are only the short list of what one receives. I became more proactive in looking at programs. I was one of two selected from Indiana to be a part of the Toyota Teacher Exchange program to Japan. Having a toolbox filled with leadership skills helps in problem solving, community involvement and servant – learning.
