Raising the Standards
What is Raising the Standards?
This prestigious programme was developed to motivate and enhance the skills of emerging leaders within TeenAg clubs. There are three fully-funded events each year, held in different locations throughout New Zealand.
Raising the Standards is run by New Zealand Young Farmers and funded by DairyNZ. With it worth over $500 per person this is a great opportunity for students to work on their leadership skills and network with like-minded individuals.
