Bond County Ag in the Classroom Mission & Vision

The mission of the Bond County Ag in the Classroom program is to increase agriculture literacy and advance agriculture by providing education programs in schools, at community programs and outreach events.  A person that is literate in agriculture "understands and can communicate the source and value of agriculture as it affects our quality of life."  The Bond County AITC program seeks to improve student and community understanding by providing agricultural focused lessons that meet national learning standards in core curriculum in science, social studies, language and math.  We have resources in our AITC Book Barn Mobile Education Trailer that are available at public events and festivals to improve the understanding of and advancement of agriculture within our community.  The AITC vision is that "agriculture is valued by all." 

For information on how you can support our mission & vision please contact the Bond County AITC Executive Director, Emily Hartmann, or the Education Coordinator, Chelsea Icenogle.
