Poultry Institute for Youth – June 15-17, 2014

The TAMU Poultry Institute for Youth is held on the Texas A&M campus once a year (usually in June).  The purpose of this program is to give high school students with an interest in learning about the poultry industry a chance to gain first hand knowledge.  Participants will have the opportunity to meet Texas A&M staff and Texas poultry industry leaders.  A portion of the institute will also include hands on work with birds and areas of leadership.  Registration is open students who will be enrolled in the fall as high school juniors, seniors or college freshmen.  Registration forms for the next institute will be posted after the first of the year.
