Junior MANRRS is a pre-collegiate outreach program of the National Society of Minorities in Agriculture, Natural Resources and Related Sciences (MANRRS) for high school-aged and younger students geared towards promoting future career pathways and educational opportunities in the field of food, agricultural, environmental and related sciences. Junior MANRRS members are affiliated with the National Society through membership with a local “in good standings” MANRRS chapter. Through Junior MANRRS, college-level students act as mentors to the pre-college aged students through effective networking opportunities with them as well as with other MANRRS student members, university faculty, and industry professionals nationwide.
