The LEAD Experience empowers and equips educators through exposure to professional networks rich in cultural values, agriculture, natural resources, sustainability, education, and development, inspiring them to pursue their calling with excellence.

The week-long LEAD Experience, held in June, takes teachers on a 1,000+ mile journey across Texas, encompassing approximately 15 locations. Visits include headquarters of corporate sponsors as well as educational and workforce sites. During the event, participants have the opportunity to hear from over 50 presenters, including workforce executives, agricultural specialists, legislators, supporters of Texas FFA, Foundation Board Members, and staff from Texas Team Ag Ed.

Please be our guest, and enjoy an expense free, week long experience as a “Thank You” for everything you do for the youth of Texas.
