Changing mindsets to realize “cool” well paying jobs and enterprenuerial opportunities exist in agribusiness value chain.
Our Student Placement Program presents many possibilities for the youth because though older people still use the traditional methods of farming, the youth are poised to reshape the economy. Their unique experiences will change the way people buy and sell, forcing companies and investors to examine how they do business for decades to come. Millennials’ affinity for technology is reshaping the retail space and with the availability of product information, reviews and price comparisons at their fingertips, millennials are turning to brands that can offer maximum convenience at the lowest cost. This shows the possibility for products to be marketed with a strong brand that shows value and the power of social cohesion. Our program provides youth with hands-on skills they won’t be able to find in a classroom, equipping them with training in agribusiness and providing them with the opportunity to gain knowledge, increase employability skills, and gain teamwork, creative and critical thinking, communication and other skills first hand in real world agribusiness industries.
