Extensive youth involvement in agriculture has declined over the years to reasons too numerous to mention. Given the nature of the industry and the constraints affecting it, youth involvement is seriously needed to inject innovativeness and creativity thereby improving the sustainability of the agricultural industry.
For Agricultural science students at University of Guyana the sort of environment that encouraged youth involvement was not catered for in the official curriculum, which lead to the formation of the Agriculture Club. The Agriculture Club encourages members to partake in ventures and projects designed to hone their managerial, interpersonal and entrepreneurial skills.
