ADM strives to make a positive difference in the communities where we work and live. The ADM Cares Strong Communities component focuses on programs and initiatives that improve the quality of life today, as we help to create a better future. Our local managers play an important role by identifying local needs that might be addressed through ADM Cares. Special attention is placed on educational initiatives for children and young adults
ADM sponsors National FFA Organization scholarships that are training a new generation of farmers, and we also support Jobs for America’s Graduates, which provides work-based learning experiences for high school students nationwide.
In addition, because so many of our employees live and work along the nation’s inland waterways, ADM Cares is a major sponsor of Living Lands and Waters,an organization that promotes the health and vitality of these vital resources on which our business relies. Since our collaboration began, ADM’s U.S. colleagues have devoted thousands of volunteer hours to removing trash and debris from major rivers.
