In 2021, Western Growers received nearly $750,000 in grant funding from the California Department of Food and Agriculture. Over the next three and a half years, these funds will be used to educate the next generation of agriculture employee.
WG will be working with California Community College ag faculty throughout the state to develop educational modules that can be quickly embedded in current courses at any community college.
This survey is your opportunity to let us know what skills your employees are currently missing so we can address these gaps as we develop curriculum at the community colleges. Our goal is to provide a pipeline of employees for members that have the skills you need most when they are hired.
The survey can be found here.
