GenerationNext is a training program optimal for people, ages 20 to 35 who will be the next generation to operate a family business, or for those who intend to start their own business. It is a series of in-person seminars, held at various locations throughout the Northeast, combined with a self-paced computer-based course that supports the fundamental skills covered by the program.
GenerationNext focuses on business and financial management for agricultural operations. Class discussions are more about the dollars and cents aspects of ag businesses than about plants or cows. Discussion is tailored to the skills and needs of each class. You can expect intermediate or college-level instruction, but no prior knowledge of financial terms is necessary.
Classes are generally held in the fall and winter of each year at various locations. Contact Farm Credit East for more information about the next class in your area.
