Tom Osborne to give keynote at Ag Outlook conference
This year, Ag Outlook has teamed up with the TeamMates Mentoring Program for the 2013 Ag Outlook conference. TeamMates was founded in 1991 when Coach Tom Osborne of the University of Nebraska recognized a need for support and direction for the youth of the Lincoln community. He recruited 22 of his football players to mentor youth in surrounding areas. Upon the visible success of this venture, he and his wife Nancy founded the TeamMates Mentoring Program. In this school-based, one-to-one mentoring program, mentors are matched with students that hold similar interests at schools at a convenient distance from their work or home. With a mission to positively impact the world by inspiring youth to reach their full potential through mentoring, TeamMates now serves nearly 6,000 kids in 100 communities throughout Nebraska. Chances are there is a TeamMates program right in your community.
