In 2019 alone, close to 500 adults were trained to serve as Progressive Agriculture Safety Day coordinators who are leading the crusade to build safer and healthier communities in the places they live, work and play. With the support of another 20,000 local volunteers serving in various roles, including planning committee members, presenters, group leaders and other on-site logistics, our program provided age-appropriate, hands-on safety education to nearly 80,000 youth participants between the ages of 4 and 13.
More than 121,000 hours of volunteer time was logged in 2019, which is valued at more than $3 million in support. However, to our program, a volunteer's time is PRICELESS.
"At the end of the day, we took a microphone and asked the kids what the favorite part of the Safety Day was. So many hands went up that we couldn't get to all the kids. They were so happy and so enthusiastic to go home and share what they learned. It was very heart-warming." -- Carrie Bergquist, Progressive Agriculture Safety Day Coordinator in Crookston, Minnesota
