Start them early program baseline study : understanding youth perceptions toward careers in agriculture
Results of this study suggest several avenues for Start Them Early Program (STEP) activities, designed to strengthen career pathways toward agriculture in DR Congo, Kenya and Nigeria. STEP is a youth program launched by the International Institute of Tropical Agriculture (IITA) to advance agribusiness development in secondary schools across Africa. The project brief provides an outline of the project, development of a survey instrument, and detailed results from each country. Data was provided through a survey of 451 secondary school students, randomly selected from three purposefully selected schools. Table A3.5 proposes some ways that STEP can provide support to students attracted to agriculture.
