The U.S. Poultry and Egg Association, in conjunction with the Texas A&M Poultry Science Department and the Aggie Leadership Council sponsor the TAMU Poultry Institute for Youth. The Institute is held every summer on the Texas A&M campus. The purpose of this program is to give high school students a chance to learn about the poultry industry through hands-on activities. The participants will have the opportunity to meet Texas A&M staff as well as leaders from the poultry industry. A portion of the institute will consist of hands-on experience by working directly with poultry as well as visiting poultry facilities.
