Avengers??  No it is not just a movie!  This team of individuals are eager to represent the Agricultural and Extension Education major at Penn State.  What is their mission you may ask?  It may not be to protect the world from a race of alien invaders.  However, some would argue that it is still imperative to our future.  


The mission of the Penn State Teach Ag Avengers is to cultivate awareness for agricultural and extension education.

Unfortunately, it appears that inn today's world the majority of people across the world have an unclear view of what agricultural and extension education really is all about.  Some individuals say, "They teach that in our schools?" or "What does that even mean?".  This must be changed if we are to educate society on the importance of agriculture in everyday life.  Who better to do it then 6 highly motivated Penn State students??  How do these Avengers hope to accomplish this mission?


Through our passion as positive agents of change, Penn State Teach Ag Avengers will empower individuals through involvement in agricultural and extension education; inspiring them to discover their career potential to influence and participate in the future of agriculture.

Talk about a vision!  If you are a current AEE major, or you are interested in finding out what your future may look like as an agricultural educator, be sure to talk to these individuals to see how you can be a part of positive change for the future.  Discover your potential!
