Inspiring youth, guiding careers

Young Professionals in Local Development is guiding youth on their career path!

The Young Professionals in Local Development is proud to present its "Career guidance" web section built under the care of our Regional and Country Representatives, together with a few collaborators.

Last year, YPLD started a fruitful collaboration with a young, upcoming specialist in agri-communications from Trinidad & Tobago, Keron Bascombe. In his first article for YPLD, Keron gave us the insights of Dr. Jimmy Smith, Director of the International Livestock Research Institute (ILRI). Now, for our "Career Guidance" section, Keron interviewed Lennon Roberts, Agricultural Officer at the Sugarcane Feed Center, on "how to attain a career in agriculture". Get the "inside" tips & tricks together with Keron Bascombe and Lennon Roberts.

If you have something that you would like to ask us under the "Career guidance" section or if you would like to share your experience as a young professional with us, please e-mail us at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. .
