What we aim to solve

SOURCE: Self-reported by organization

Agriculture remains important to Hawai‘i’s economy and to the preservation of its natural resources. Unfortunately, it is largely misunderstood by the average person. In these times where divergent views of agriculture tend to pull the sector apart, it is more important than ever to work together because the economic and cultural vitality of agriculture and rural communities has reverberating effects throughout our entire society. A healthy, thriving, sustainable agriculture sector is important to Hawai‘i’s future. Through the Agricultural Leadership Program, ALFH nurtures leaders who can help achieve this.

What are the organization's current programs, how do they measure success, and who do the programs serve?

Agricultural Leadership Program

The Agricultural Leadership Program (ALP) is a signature training program of the Agricultural Leadership Foundation of Hawai‘i (ALFH), a non-profit 501(c)(3) organization established in 1982. This multi-disciplinary statewide program brings together promising leaders from Hawai‘i’s agriculture, natural resources management and rural community sectors. By combining strong leadership content with exposure to organizations, agricultural operations and community networks, participants develop their path toward becoming the innovative problem-solvers and leaders that are so needed in Hawai`i.

The Agricultural Leadership Foundation of Hawaii (ALFH) provides leadership development opportunities for people committed to strengthening agriculture in Hawaii. ALFH has 35+ years of experience developing and delivering agricultural programs in Hawaii. This experience includes the Agricultural Leadership Program which has graduated over 180 adults from intensive exposure to critical issues within the agricultural and natural resources sectors and provided training in a range of leadership awareness and tools to succeed when leading farms, ranches, companies, government and the no -profit sector. ALFH also works to support Hawaii FFA by providing opportunities for students to further develop their leadership skills and interest in the agricultural sector.

Since 2002, ALFH has successfully planned and delivered the statewide Hawaii Agriculture Conference with the last conference being held in October of 2019. The conference is unique in its appeal and ability to deliver an educational program that cuts across commodities to bring together and unite the entire sector with common issues, concerns and opportunities. The conference includes a student program that focuses on the involvement of advisors and students from FFA and other agricultural or natural resource-based programs.

Over 180 participants have graduated from the 18-month Agricultural Leadership Program since it began in 1982.

The most recent Hawaii Agriculture Conference was held in 2019 with a record number of participants, 650. Over 90 students and advisors also attended and participated in a dynamic student program.

Agricultural Leadership Program Class XVII will take place from May 2020 - November 2021. Efforts will be made to increase connections between ALP participants and alumni and students and teachers.

The next Hawaii Agriculture Conference will take place in the fall of 2021.
