Leaders for the Next Generation
Never have self-reliance and self-confidence been more necessary. It’s a world in which events a
hemisphere away can have a direct and immediate impact on all of us. The more you know, the more options you have and the more control you have over your own destiny.
IANR’s commitment to youth development aligns perfectly with the demands from industry,
community leaders and government for increased skills and knowledge to compete and prosper in a highly competitive global economy. Literacy in science, engineering and technology is a prerequisite for active and informed citizenship and tapping into the entrepreneurial essence that exists within Nebraska’s youth – providing the knowledge to recognize and capitalize on opportunity and successfully adapt to rapidly changing conditions.
When a young person establishes a business here at home, their roots grow deep as well. The success of their community and their state becomes synonymous with their own – inspiring involvement, engagement and leadership.
If our social and economic systems can be compared to biological organisms, then individuals are the “molecules” upon which their very life and breath depend. IANR’s commitment to generating entrepreneurial energy among our young people will ensure the health and longevity of Nebraskans and their communities for decades to come.
