Youth Farming and Leadership Report #2

Following our 7 week pilot project from May to June 2020 with 22 students from the Barbados Youth Advance Corps (BYAC), The Sojourner Foundation is currently engaged in an extended 3 month Youth Farming and Leadership Programme. We started in September 2020 with 21 of the same 22 students. We are now delving more deeply into the training activities in the various modules of the Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts and Mathematics (STEAM) curriculum. The programme runs from Monday to Friday each week, from 9:00 am to 3:00 pm, with a one hour break for lunch.

We are further developing our students' knowledge of sustainable agricultural practices, culinary arts and natural living. We are encouraging them to work on the development of their business ideas, goal setting, researching their target markets and looking at pricing and their value propositions. We have been fortunate to secure a partnership with the Barbados Youth Business Trust, another registered charity that focuses on business mentoring, start up financing and entrepreneurial skills development.

We have attached a presentation, which shows a number of the various activities in which we have engaged our students over the first 6 weeks of the programme. We look forward to working with the BYAC students each year and continuing to expand our programme and our model farm space to ensure increased youth participation in agriculture and greater economic development, food security and overall resilience in our island.
