Learning Journeys Postponed

Due to COVID-19

The Kentucky Agricultural Leadership Program has made the difficult decision to postpone the learning journeys to Washington DC (originally March 16-20) and Japan, Vietnam, and Thailand (originally July 5-20).  We will reschedule once we are confident there is no risk to the health and safety of our participants and their families.


The Kentucky Agricultural Leadership Program (KALP) is an intensive two year program designed for young agricultural producers and agribusiness individuals who want to further develop their leadership skills.

The program consists of eleven sessions devoted to important/timely issues affecting agriculture and sessions focusing on improving participant's communication, leadership, and management skills. Seven seminars will be held in varying regions of Kentucky to compare and contrast challenges and solutions in agricultural practices.  Classes also visit Frankfort, Washington DC, another area of the United Sates, and other nation(s). The program has graduated 291 participants over the course of eleven classes. 

Dr. Will Snell and Dr. Steve Isaacs currently serve as co-directors of the program.
