New Program funded by FRRR
Youth Ag Activation Program
Tablelands Community Strategic Plan 2016-2036 is “to grow the regions core strengths in agriculture… and deliver a highly liveable community which attracts and rewards residents and visitors.” Therefore the Australian Agricultural Centre wants to create programs that provide education and training regionally and will retain more youth to the area. Through training programs we can define a pathway to future employment, and connect education and careers. Practical hands on educational environments engage the disengaged.
The course content is designed to lower farm injuries and deaths facilitate agricultural employment by making students work ready, and able to be safely employed on farm in holidays. The program engages community and provides longer term social benefits for the community, as place based employment opportunities will increase youth retention in the area.
