Lagos State Agripreneurship Training Program 2024

Introducing the Lagos Agripreneurship Programme (L.A.P.), a transformative social initiative designed to introduce the youth to the world of agriculture through modern techniques, ultimately fostering job creation and wealth generation. Recognizing agriculture as a pivotal sector in many economies, with significant GDP contributions in developing nations, this program aims to harness the potential of young individuals. With the average age of food producers in the country exceeding 60 years, the need for inclusive strategies to involve the youth in food production is critical. Lagos, in alignment with this vision, has launched targeted programs under the Ministry of Agriculture to address key barriers hindering youth participation in agriculture, such as lack of funding, access to land, markets, and training opportunities.


Under the visionary leadership of Mr. Babajide Olusola Sanwo-Olu, the Lagos Agripreneurship Programme was conceived in 2020 to empower 15,000 youths over the next five years in poultry, aquaculture, vegetable, and piggery value chains. Participants not only receive training in modern agricultural practices but also benefit from a three-month internship and mentorship phase to further enhance their skills and knowledge. The program is open to unemployed women and youth passionate about agriculture, aged between 18-35 for males and 18-40 for females, who hold a minimum of a Senior Secondary School Certificate and meet satisfactory health criteria.

For those eager to embark on this transformative journey, the application process is straightforward.
