The YAIP program was developed by Kentucky Agricultural Development to facilitate a growing need for a specialized program that would benefit youth actively engaged in agriculture.  The focus of the program is on youth developing agricultural projects, as well as strengthening partnerships with school ag programs, Cooperative Extension, and 4-H/FFA organizations.
